Part of the allure of trout fishing is the blind potential of what lies beneath every cast you make.

About 15 years ago I saw it the first time. I was fishing with Pat Hogan and Jay Thurston. I was not close to the refusal but I was apprised of the aftermath. Jay had a huge hit. The fish freight trained the Mepps See Best and was off nearly as fast as it was on. All I heard was muttering about the power of the fish and how it possibly could have gotten off so quickly with such a ferocious strike.

The next year I took my friend Bob Skoronski "Green Bay Packer" retired Ice Bowl Era to the same stretch of water. Before we got close to the cut corner that Jay got abused in, I told Bob to make sure his lure was tied on well and to retie if the knot was in question. Bob retied just to be cautious. I had told Bob the story of the freight train from the year before. I could tell by his facial expression he was a tad bit skeptical of my retelling of the tale from the year before.

That's a fun read. It's part of the reason we love hunting and fishing. You never know what might show up.
