He has rejected the traditional method of Trout Fishing for a hostile one.
This describes my renegade man perfectly!
While most at Bennett Spring State Park fish for Trout
where the water is calm or free flowing. . .
"Mr. Ed", my renegade man, chooses to be a bit more daring.
Fishing off the table ledge of the dam is known as
Just climbing the rise from the sidewalk
to the table ledge involves a certain amount of risk taking.
Once atop the table ledge,
one must balance and steady themselves .
One wrong move and they will be taken swiftly off the ledge
by the rapid moving current into the stream.
But for those whom dare to fish in these rapidly moving waters,
the rewards far exceed the risk. . .so states, my renegade man.
"Mr. Ed" with his "Catch~of~the~Day" . . .
a Brown Trout weighing in at 3 lbs. 2 oz. and measuring 19 1/2" long.
One of the joys of catching this size Trout is the local recognition one receives. . .
Photos and recording of "The Catch~of~the~Day" at the State Park. . .
and at Weaver's Tackle Store for the local Trout Talk Publication. . .
not to forget the Lunker Pins and badges from these establishments
and also, Larry's Sporting Goods Store!
The greatest reward is in the self satisfaction and the memories
of another successful Trout Fishing Trip for my renegade man!
Until next time. . .
