I guess it depends how much of your fun comes from catching fish, and how much comes from exploring the river. I'm always wanting to fish my way around one more bend, then one more, and one more just to see what's down there before I go. Fishing as many different streams as I can is just an extension of that across the hills instead of around the bend.

"Just one more bend..." There's a small Brook Trout stream that I just started to explore more. Each visit finds me further and further from my car. I made it beyond the other footprints and I'm convinced some of the fish haven't seen a human in years...or ever.

Be careful Eric...They are watching us now from satelites and using GPS...Someone or everyone will track you and will be standing in your hole next time you visit if you are not careful!

I have a friend that fishes during the week and would tell me about all his secret spots...I would finally be able to get there on the weekend, "wage-slave" that I am, and everyone and their cousins would be there...Oh well!
