    I really liked the mime routine he does at the end as he hand lines the fish in the shallows. Too funny!

    Lends new meaning to the word "run" as it relates to fishing . . . credit where credit is due: a spectacular fish, a spectacular effort.

    You're on it Dave. La Mouching has ran a few stories about fish like this from the same area over the time I've been paying attention.
    Maybe someday I'll have a chance at taking an old beater rod and a piece of a weaving loom there myself...

    Sign me up. I'll bring the moth larva (apparently the bait).

    On yeah I also wanted to add... Just wait till Simms gets a hold of this video. We will all be waiting in line for the more athletic, light weight, and stylish white "SIMMS SNEEKERS".. With matching skin tight Simms athletic unibody short shorts.. Just you wait and see its gonna happen..

    It's like a French version of the Cedar River when you look at it from the coordinates Dave put on, only a little more glacial looking in the water coloring, and bigger flows, and better streamside vegetation, actually way better streamside vegetation and what looks like mainly parkland for many, many miles upstream, and an absence of an airport, and there's no large jet manufacturing plant and definitely no Riviera apartments, although there is a housing development at the delta with artificial waterways that probably could be called the Riviera more legitimately than the "$50 dollar discount if you pay on time" Riviera in Renton.

    Ok maybe it's not like the Cedar in the slightest but for the industrial parks close to where it was hooked.

    That dude showed some serious patience. I would have wigged out, horsed it, and broken it off 20minutes ago.
