I had promised Jason I'd make amends for my bass report from last autumn, but it took a while.

My brother-in-law and I had scrapped a trip to Erie due to high waters there, and he proposed we do a little trout fishing. I was anxious to give the hairy honeybug some employment, so it was easy to agree. Fishing was slow, but the bug found a 17" rainbow and a 9-10 inch wild brown, so all in all a good day for my first trout outing in months.
