You guys have to check this out a couple older gentlemen are making a dream trip from South to North across our country. It's s great idea, and I love the notion of two guys in their later years taking on a trip of this nature. I'm not much for bashing people publicly so, just going to make a few comments based from info in Gary's articles posted on ESPN following their trip.
"Unless you want to catch an Apache to add it to you bucket list I say skip them. They fight small, mostly because they're small."
Here you go Gary, this shot's for you. Maybe next time you seek Apache trout, you should rely on info gathered from places other than a coffee shop in Springerville, that happens to sell tippet and flies, before you venture out to fish and write on places you've never been before.
Next they headed to Gila Country. The Author got blanked. Going on to say the following, "Gila trout are small fish in small streams and extremely tough to catch."
Gary I would like you to meet Hudson, he was two at the time of this picture.
So I only made it about half way through their third stop, when they started attributing their success to temp checks on the San Juan, a tail water which remains a constant 42 F. The title of this installment was, "Dumbest Fish in America."
While I sincerely love their idea and the trip across our country searching out trouts in their home waters, I have to ask WTF is the best sport reporting organization on the planet doing? Obviously someone has lost the lock to the drawer full of pens.
