Good memories below.... I'm fishing for cutts, today. That's all there is to it. Dreams can come true! This is from...

June 14th 2002 night time...

...an Instant Message
conversation I just had.
Thought I'd share. :)

Jennie: You there?
Friend of Jennie: Yes
Jennie: Once upon a time....
Jennie: I wasn't feelin very happy.
Jennie: So, I grabbed my rod, and I headed down to the river, tired, exhausted, and feeling a little frustrated and alone.
Friend of Jennie: yes?
Jennie: I made my way across the rocks... I had bare feet, so I grabbed socks out of the lost sock box, and put on some cut off old loose rubber boots.
Jennie: I tripped, but I finally made it!
Jennie: I sat down.
Jennie: grabbed a yellowish weighted nymph pattern, somewhat like a muddler.
Jennie: Tied it on.
Jennie: Sitting down on the rocks of the upper hole, where the water gushes into a deep hole and swirls around until it tails out by a rock on the other side.
Jennie: Across the river, across the riffles, is a still pool.
Friend of Jennie: I think I know it.
Jennie: Letting the nymph swirl.
Jennie: I just let it swirl around as I thought, and something kept nipping at it.
Jennie: Little ones, I thought... I wasn't too excited.
Friend of Jennie: Salamanders?
Jennie: Will you listen?
Friend of Jennie: Water sprites?
Friend of Jennie: OK
Jennie: Please?
Jennie: I'm telling a story! :)
Jennie: OK.
Jennie: eh hem.
Jennie: So....
Jennie: I decided to cast over to the still water, just to see how my rod reacts.
Jennie: It is fairly shallow over there, and still, but... you never know, right?
Jennie: So, I laid it out nicely, and.... it swirled past a rock where the water is deep.....
Jennie: I did it again. Casting that far was effortless and fun.
Jennie: SPLASH
Jennie: What the heck???
Jennie: A huge cutt came clear out of the water!
Jennie: I didn't have him on my fly, but I KNEW that it was after my fly!
Jennie: YIKES!
Jennie: So I casted again!
Jennie: Sitting down.
Jennie: still.
Jennie: Nibble.
Jennie: Nibble.
Jennie: cast..
Jennie: Nibble
Jennie: Nibble
Jennie: Cast..........
Jennie: WHAMMO!
Jennie: My reel ZIPPED!
Jennie: I didn't know what to do with all my line!
Jennie: Reel it in or hand line it in???
Jennie: Reel!
Jennie: So, I let everything go!
Jennie: All that line!
Jennie: No tension!
Jennie: I reeled it in reel reel reel...
Jennie: Finally, met with the tension of the fish.
Jennie: I know that was wrong, but I didn't know what was right!
Jennie: So, I played him!
Jennie: My drag!! There is a drag on this reel!
Jennie: It was set really light!
Jennie: That fish took me all over the place!
Jennie: He wanted to go over the falls!
Jennie: He wanted to bury himself in the rocks!
Jennie: Nope!
Jennie: Up up up up up up up HERE HE IS!!!! KILCHIS! LOOK WHAT I HAVE!
Jennie: It was the most BEAUTIFUL resident cutt I had ever seen!
Jennie: About 13 or 14 inches and FAT!
Friend of Jennie: I have the biggest smile hearing about it!
Jennie: I mean, on my new fly rod!
Jennie: All by myself!
Jennie: But I couldn't grab him!
Jennie: My rod is so long!
Jennie: How do you do that?
Jennie: I reeled in, and finally he was 9 feet off my rod, but then what???
Friend of Jennie: lift the rod up to bring the fish near your feet.
Jennie: I let a little line up.
Friend of Jennie: Point it towards the sky
Jennie: I did, but when I reached down, then he shot away!
Jennie: So I had to grab the line!
Jennie: And work my hand down the line. Is that OK?
Friend of Jennie: Nets are the gentle way.
Jennie: And then he was slippery! Slipperier than steelies!
Jennie: I'd like to have a good net.
Friend of Jennie: Working down the line is OK, too.
Friend of Jennie:
I built my own little net ... I never use it. It's beautiful.
Friend of Jennie: Cherry and maple and oak.
Jennie: Pretty!
Jennie: Nylon or rope?
Jennie: or rubber?
Friend of Jennie: Cotton net.
Friend of Jennie: soft on the fish
Jennie: That's the best I hear.
Jennie: I'm so excited I can't relax!
Friend of Jennie: When you described the fly swirling behind the rock, you know what I thought?
Jennie: what?
Jennie: BIGFISH?
Jennie: STEELIE?
Friend of Jennie: I felt Milton smiling down on you ... slack line technique.
Jennie: I can't talk.
Jennie: tears.
Jennie: You made me cry!
Friend of Jennie: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you cry.
Jennie: That's OK, it's a good cry.
Jennie: Milton! I got my own cutt!
Jennie: On a fly!
Jennie: That's good, right?
Friend of Jennie: Yes, it's excellent! Great! Stupendous!
Jennie: I always catch little ones. :-)
Jennie: This one was BIG!
Friend of Jennie: They come in all sizes.
Jennie: And fat!
Jennie: Milton sent me a big fish!
Friend of Jennie: I can remember the few big cutts I've caught in my life ... they all took so much work and always surprised me.
Jennie: I feel good. Now I'm going to take a bath and go to bed.... Dreaming of flocks of cutthroat. :-)
Friend of Jennie: The biggest was after a 5 hour hike and I caught it in 8 inches of water ... I couldn't believe it!
Jennie: Wow!
Friend of Jennie: Big trout on a fly ... it really is sport, isn't it!
Jennie: It really is.
Friend of Jennie: Totally exhilarating ... beyond the dimensions of the fish ... a line to something greater ... spiritual.
Jennie: I can relate to that feeling. :)

Jennie's Fishing Life, Complete!
Ifish Jennie on Grant's Getaways

Last year I didn't halibut fish once. The year before I was o-fer three. So it really feels good to be back on the board with a feisty 45. My buddy was happy with his 35, it was his first. Southeast Rockpile, Mark Mc Special, purple label with sardine oil scent and a glow in the dark twisty tail thingy. Read the full story

A reminder from Jennie!
Do not burn yourself out!
Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast...a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still there. So get out there, and hunt and fish, and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the Grizz, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely mysterious and awesome space.
Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: you will outlive the (bad word edited for this family site!!)."
--Edward Abbey
