World Fly Fishing Championship 2019

Exploring Arkansas January 2015


>> OH IT’S NICE. GOOD.
OKAY. I MAY GET YOU TO DROP THAT BACK
OUT. >> OKAY.
>> RIGHT THERE. >> IT’S NOT EVERYDAY YOU GET
TO HOOK UP WITH ONE OF THE TOP FLY FISHERMEN IN THE WORLD.
CHUCK FARNETH FROM HEBER SPRINGS
IS CURRENTLY RANKED SEVENTH AND WAS ESPN’S GOLD FLY MEDALISTS
AND YOU MIGHT SAY THAT CHUCK FARNETH KNOWS A THING OR TWO
ABOUT FLY FISHING. >> NOW, WHEN YOU PUSH I WANT
YOU TO PUSH YOUR ARM OUT AND SNAP YOUR THUMB. THERE IS THE
CAST. NOW THE ROD IS DOWN. THIS STAYS IN YOUR MIDDLE FINK
ONLY. YOUR LEFT HAND HOLD THIS IS LINE.
>> OKAY. >> YOU’RE GOING TO POINT TO
THE INDICATOR. PULL THE LINE WITH THE LEFT HAND AND YOU HAVE
SLACK AND YOU WANT TO TAKE OUT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AND I MENDED
AND A MANAGEMENT OF LINE THAT YOU CALL MEND AND MOVE IT SO IT
DOESN’T HINDER THE DRIFT OF THE FLY. THAT INDICATOR HELPS YOU
A LOT AND SEE THE SPEED THAT IT’S
TRAVELING AND IT’S BELOW 5 FEET OF THE INDICATOR AND WHEN THE
FISH TAKES IT IT WILL MOVE THE INDICATOR AND PULL WITH YOUR
LEFT THROUGH THAT FINGER. EVERYBODY GETS EXCITED AND THEY
SEEM TO FORGET THE FACT THAT THE
LINE HAS TO GO THROUGH THE FINGER AND THEY PULL IT OUT OF
THE FINGER AND DON’T KNOW WHAT TO. DO I SEEN THEM PUT IT IN
THEIR MOUTH TO CONTROL THE TENSION BUT THIS CONTROLS THE
TENSION HERE. I CALL THAT IS THE CONTROLLER. THIS IS THE
DIRECTOR AND YOUR THUMB IS POINTING TOWARDS THE TIP OF THE
ROD SO WHAT DOES IT TELL YOU? ANYTHING THAT YOU DO YOU POINT
YOUR THUMB TO WHERE YOU WANT TO CAST SO WHEN YOU COME UP AND
POINT YOUR THUMB OVER THERE THAT’S WHERE YOUR FLY IS GOING
TO GO. SEE THAT? >> CONTRARY TO OTHER OTHERS
MAY TELL YOU FLY FISHING IS NOT ALL
IN THE WRIST. >> COME OVER HERE AND OVER
YOUR SHOULDER AND CAST TO THE RIGHT. AND PUSH YOUR THUMB
HARD. DO IT ONE MORE TIME. WAIT. NOW PUSH HARD. NOT BAD.
YOU’RE GETTING A LITTLE WRISTY
AND THE FORM. LET’S TRY IT AGAIN. STOP. PULL THIS BACK
REAL SLOW. NOW WHEN YOU PUSH —
SEE THE ENERGY? THAT’S THE ENERGY YOU WANT. DON’T USE
YOUR WRIST. I WANT TO YOU PUSH YOUR
ARM. >> IT’S NOT ALL IN THE WRIST.
>> THAT’S EXACTLY RIGHT. PUSH
IT. THAT’S IT. GOOD. SEE HOW MUCH FURTHER YOU GOT? IF YOU
DO THIS YOU’RE TELLING THE LINE TO
GO UP IN THE AIR AND GO DOWN. YOU WANT TO PUSH IT. SO WHAT
WE’RE DOING NOW IS LIFTING IT DRIFT WITH THE CURRENT. WE’RE
FEEDING THE FISH. THEY SIT FACING UPSTREAM AND WILL TAKE
THE FOOD AS IT DRIFTS BY AND WE ARE CASTING UPSTREAM AND GO
DOWN TO THE FISH NATURAL AND THE
MORE NATURAL IT LOOKS THE BETTER THE
RESPONSE. MORE FREQUENTLY YOU WILL GET STRIKES AND THEN YOU
HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HOOK UP MORE FREQUENTLY AND ENJOY THE
BONUS OF CATCHING. >> AND CATCHING IS WHAT I WAS
ANXIOUSLY WAITING ON. >> NOW SEE THAT LITTLE RING
RIGHT THERE YOU HAVE A FISH. IF
YOU LIFT THE ROD UP CAN YOU CATCH IT AND PULL WITH YOUR
LEFT HAND. THIS IS YOUR DRAG IF
YOU’RE FAMILIAR WITH SPINNING RODS. THE FINGER CONTROLS THE
TENSION. REMEMBER I SAID IT BEING A CONTROLLER?
>> YEAH. >> THAT’S THE DRAG AND IF YOU
TRY TO STOP THE FISH THE LINE IS
LIGHT ENOUGH HE WILL BREAK IT SO
WHAT YOU DO IS JUST TAKE YOUR TIME. KEEP THE ROD UP LIKE
THAT SO IT BENDS.
>> YEAH. >> IT PROTECTS THE LINE AS
WELL AND CONTROLS THE DIRECTION OF THE FISH. SEE WHERE HE
WANTS TO GO? LIKE ANY FISH HE WILL
GO FOR STRUCTURE SO IF YOU KEEP
YOUR ARM UP HIGH WE CAN PULL HIM
OVER THE TOP AND I HAVE TO HAVE A NET WITH A LONG HANDLE SO I
DON’T HAVE TO GO QUITE AS FAR AND SCOOP HIM UP LIKE THAT.
THIS IS THE EASIEST PART OF THE GAI.
I USE BARBLESS HOOKS. IT’S OUT ALREADY. AS SOON AS YOU
RELEASE THE TENSION THE FISH IS
RELEASED AND WE PUT THEM RIGHT BACK IN
THE WATER. >> WITH FLY FISHING IT’S VERY
EASY TO LOSE INTEREST IF YOU’RE NOT CATCHING ANYTHING VERSUS
THE TYPICAL ROD AND REAL
BAITFISHING. >> CONFIDENCE IS A HUGE
FACTOR IN FISHING, JUST ANGLING
ITSELF, SO YOU HAVE YOUR CONFIDENCE
LURE, YOUR CONFIDENCE ROD AND ALL THE BAITS THAT YOU USE.
THOSE ARE THE TYPES OF THINGS THAT WILL TAKE YOU OUT AND
KEEPING FISHING FOR HOURS AND HOURS BECAUSE YOU HAVE A LOT OF
CONFIDENCE IN SOMETHING YOU CAUGHT FISH ON LAST TIME YOU
WENT. IF YOU PUT SOMETHING NEW IN SOMEBODY’S HAND THE
CONFIDENCE LEVEL IS LOW. THEY JUST WANT TO TRY IT. IT’S AN
INTREEK. THEY WANT TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT, MAYBE MORE
CHALLENGING FOR THEM, BUT IT GETS TO THE POINT IF THEY DON’T
HAVE GOOD INSTRUCTION, LACK OF KNOWLEDGE IT WILL DETER THEM
BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT DOING IT PROPERLY. SEE THAT STRIKE.
YOU MISSED THAT TOO. YOU HAVE TO
KEEP YOUR EYES ON IT WHILE I TALK, SO THE POINT IS PEOPLE GO
OUT WITH A FLY ROD WITH GOOD INTENTIONS BUT THEY GET
FRUSTRATED AND DISCOURAGED ANDED
ROD SITS IN THE CORNER FOR DECADES AND UNTIL THE GRANDKIDS
GROW UP AND WE WILL TRY IT AGAIN
BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY. THERE IS A LOT OF GOOD
INSTRUCTION OUT THERE, WHETHER IT’S THE INTERNET, YOUTUBE.
THERE ARE GUIDE SERVICES ALL OVER ARKANSAS IF WE STAY HERE
BECAUSE WE HAVE PHENOMENAL TROUT
WATER HERE, BEST IN THE WORLD. IT’S ONE OF THE WAYS THAT I
FIND TO BE THERAPEUTIC. THAT’S
PROBABLY THE REASON I STARTED FLY FISHING. NUMBER ONE I LOVE
CHALLENGES. BAITFISHING WAS JUST TOO EASY AND I DIDN’T WANT
TO KILL ALL OF THE FISH I CAUGHT
AND I CAUGHT A LOT AND OFTENTIMES THEY SWALLOW THE
BAIT AND THE HOOK WILL GET INTO
INTERNALS AND TEAR IT AND IT WILL CAUSE THE FISH TO DIE EVEN
THOUGH IT SWIMS OFF IT WILL DIE,
AND I JUST TRY TO CATCH AND RELEASE SO SOMEBODY ELSE CAN
COME OUT AND ENJOY IT. ALL RIGHT.
>> FANETH TALKED TO WHAT IT MEANT TO BE HOOKED ON FISHING
WHEN HE WAS YOUNG INSTEAD OF OTHER THINGS.
>> I LEARNED IT AS A YOUNGSTER
AND I VALUE THAT BECAUSE I SEE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT HAVEN’T TAKEN
AN INTEREST IN FISHING. THEY HAVE INTEREST IN OTHER THINGS
BUT FISHING ISN’T ONE OF THEM AND I FOUND IT WAS ONE OF THOSE
ACTIVITIES THAT KEPT ME FROM GETTING INTO TOO MUCH TROUBLE
SO I FEEL IT’S SOMETHING I CAN
HELP CONTRIBUTE TO A YOUNG MAN’S OR
YOUNG LADY’S LIFE AND HAVE THEM CHOOSE SOMETHING OTHER THAN
MISCHIEF. I WILL PUT IT THAT WAY BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY
THINGS THEY WILL GRAVITATE TOWARDS TO GET THEM INTO
TROUBLE AND GIVE DIRECTION IN LIFE AND
THAT’S WHAT WE DO IN LEGACY AND THAT OCCUPIES A LOT OF OF MY
TIME AND WE HAVE GUESTS COME IN,
FATHERS AND SONS AND DAUGHTERS AND MEN’S GROUPS AND COME TO
LEARN ABOUT THAT BUT ALSO LEARN A LOT ABOUT FLY FISHING.
>> AFTER CATCHING A FEW MORE RAINBOWS WE DECIDED TO MOVE
DOWN STREAM FOR THE BROWNS. FIRST A
SMALL ONE AND THEN TO THE SIZE MORE LIKE WE WERE AFTER IN THE
FIRST PLACE. >> HOLD ON. LET HIM TAKE IT.
YOU HAVE A GOOD ONE. THAT’S
WHAT WE CAME HERE FOR RIGHT THERE CHUCK. YOU GOT A GOOD
ONE AND WHAT YOU WANT TO DO —
LET’S MAKE SURE THE LINE ISN’T AROUND
ANYTHING. IN YOUR MIDDLE FINGER. PERFECT. HOLD IT
RIGHT THERE. KEEP THAT TENSION.
THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT. WHEN HE PULLS LET HIM TAKE IT THROUGH
YOUR FINGER. GOOD JOB. SEE YOU
LEARNED ON THAT ONE. >> YEAH.
>> PERFECT. NICE JOB. THIS IS WHAT WE’RE HERE FOR RIGHT
THERE BUD. >> AFTER WHAT SEEMED LIKE 10
MINUTES OF ME TRYING TO GET THE BETTER OF THIS BROWN I FINALLY
MANAGED TO GET HIM CLOSE TO THE BOAT.
>> THERE WE GO. HE TRIED TO GET AWAY, DIDN’T HE?
>> HE TRIED. >> NICE CATCH. LOOK AT THAT
BROTHER. >> THAT’S WHAT THIS TRIP WAS
ALL ABOUT. >> CAPTURING ONE OF THE
LITTLE RED RIVER BROWN TROUT AND IT
DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THAT CHUCK. I’M GOING TO LIFT
HIM UP SO WE GET A GOOD VIEW. GET THE HOOK OUT. THIS GOES TO
SHOW THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE
A LOT OF EXPERIENCE, BUT IF YOU COME TO LITTLE RED RIVER IT’S
PART OF IT EXPLORING ARKANSAS WHEN YOU CATCH FISH LIKE THIS.
>> THERE YOU GO. >> THAT’S A GOOD ONE. THAT
IS A GOOD ONE RIGHT THERE.
>> I COULDN’T HAVE SAID IT ANY
BETTER. >> IT’S A LOG CONSTRUCTION
TECHNIQUE THAT GOES BACK TO MID-EVIL EUROPE AND ROBERT
RUNYAN NEAR WINSLOW IS A MASTER AT IT.
>> IT’S KIND OF YOUR PRIMITIVE, LIKE THE WAY, YOU
KNOW THE DOORS AND ALL THE WINDOWS ARE FULL LOG PIECES
THAT ARE ROUTED INTO THE LOF
TTHROUGH THE WALLS AND A PRIMITIVE TECHNIQUE
BEFORE THEY START REFINING THE
BUILDING TECHNIQUES WHICH IS KIND OF
WHAT I AM INTERESTED IN IS THE OLD
WAY OF DOING THINGS TRYING TO USE YOUR INDIGENOUS MATERIALS
AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
>> LOGS ARE CONSTRUCTED USING A METHOD CALLED SCANDINAVIAN
SCRIBE. >> SCANDINAVIAN SCRIBE IS
WHERE YOU’RE LETTING THE WOOD IN, THE TOP LOG IS SCRIBED TO
FIT THE LOG BENEATH IT AND I HAVE A TOOL. IT’S LIKE A
CALIPER AND YOU SET THE LOG UP LIKE A 2-INCH GAP BETWEEN THEM
AND YOU TAKE YOUR SCRIBE AND YOU
BENCHMARK IT, AND IT’S GOT LEVELS ON IT WHERE YOU CAN MARK
THE EXACT CONTOUR OF THE LOG BELOW AND TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN
AND CUT TO YOUR MARK, AND IF YOU
ACHIEVE A VERY TIGHT FIT THAT WAY, AND SOMETIMES THEY HAVE TO
GO IN AND OUT TWO, THREE TIMES TO GET THE FIT THAT YOU’RE
AFTER. IT’S JUST AN OLD WORLD TECHNIQUE THAT’S BEEN AROUND
FOR SEVERAL HUNDRED YEARS, AND IT
EVOLVED IN SWEDEN AND THE SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRIES. THAT’S
WHY THEY CALL IT SCANDINAVIAN SCRIBE.
>> HOW EXACTLY DID YOU ACQUIRE
A SKILL LIKE THIS? >> TRIAL AND ERROR.
[LAUGHTER] NO, JUST BEING INTERESTED IN IT
AND I AM BASICALLY SELF TAUGHT.
HI INPUT FROM SEVERAL PEOPLE, BUT ALL OF US ARE BASICALLY —
WE’RE INTRIGUED WITH THE OLDER BUILDING TECHNIQUES AND WE JUST
KIND OF DOVE INTO IT, AND KIND OF LEARNED ON THE FLY, YOU
KNOW, MADE A LOT OF MISTAKES, AND
TRIED TO LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES, THAT TYPE OF YOU KNOW
APPROACH AND REVIVE THE OLD WORLD TECHNIQUES WE’RE
INTERESTED IN AND IT’S BEEN 40 YEARS OF A LEARN BE CURVE AND
EVERYDAY YOU LEARN SOMETHING DIFFERENT. YOU TRY TO ALWAYS
KEEP TRYING TO REFINE AND IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS TO DO
A BETTER JOB. I DID A LOT OF RESEARCH. I WENT TO THE
LIBRARY BACK IN MY YOUNGER — IN MY
YOUTH WHEN I WAS GOING IN THIS DIRECTION. I DID A LOT OF
RESEARCH UP AT THE LIBRARY AND HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE OF WORKING
WITH GOOD ARCHITECTS AND LEARNING PROPORTION, AND
BALANCE AND THAT TYPE OF STUFF IN A
BUILDING, AND SO IT’S JUST BEEN AN AMALGAMATION OF A LOT OF
DIFFERENT SOURCES TO GET THERE. >> AND IN PARTICULAR THE
BIBLE THAT YOU SAID YOU HAD THAT YOU
TOOK A LOT OF INFORMATION FROM. >> YEAH. THAT WAS A BOOK
WRITTEN BY A NAME HERMAN PHELPS WHO WAS AN INTELLECTUAL AND
PREWORLD WAR II AND RESEARCHED THE TECHNIQUES IN EUROPE,
BASICALLY SCANDINAVIAN AND GERMAN, NORTHERN FRANCE AND
THAT AREA, THE EASTERN EUROPE,
RUSSIA, FINLAND AND THOSE AREAS WHERE LOG BUILDING WAS TAKEN TO
BASICALLY AN ART FORM. THERE ARE STILL BUILDINGS OVER THERE
800 YEARS OLD STILL IN USE AND THERE IS QUITE A TRADITION
BEHIND IT AND IT’S BEEN REFINED TO A MUCH MORE DEGREE OF WHAT
TOOK PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY. I GUESS BASICALLY BECAUSE IT MAY
BE EVOLVING FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
AND HERE IN THIS COUNTRY EVERYBODY ALWAYS — IT’S ALWAYS
CHANGING, YOU KNOW, AND SO WE JUST MOSTLY BEEN INTERESTED IN
TRYING TO PRESERVE AND GIVE SOME
EXAMPLES OF THIS TYPE OF BUILDING CONSTRUCTION ON RECORD.
>> BASICALLY IT’S MID-EVIL EUROPE CONSTRUCTION.
>> BASICALLY YES, AND SOME OF THE TECHNIQUES IN THIS HOUSE
ARE SOME OF THE RUDIMENTARY FROM
700, 800, THOUSAND YEARS AGO, THE JOINT WORK AND LIKE THE
DOOR FRAMES AND THE WINDY BUCKS, —
WHAT I CALL THEM AND USING ACTUAL LOGS AND TRYING TO
INCORPORATE ROCK AND STONE AND LOG TOGETHER INTO HO MONCH NOWS
STRUCTURE. >> RUNYAN HAS BEEN NAMED A
LIVING TREASURE FOR HIS LIFELONG
CONTRIBUTIONS AND RECOGNITION IN
KEEPING THIS AGE OLD CRAFT ALIVE
BUT HE’S WANT TAKING ANY CREDIT FOR IT.
>> THIS ISN’T ABOUT ME. THE AWARD WAS ABOUT SEVERAL PEOPLE.
I JUST HAPPEN TO BE THE ONE
THAT FELL ON IT. OKAY AND BUT I’VE
GOT SOME REALLY STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH SEVERAL
STONE MASONS AND LOG BUILDERS. WE’RE
ALL STONE MASONS AND LOG BUILDERS BECAUSE WE’RE ALL —
BUTCH BYERS IS ONE AND JIM MILLWAY. THEY’RE THE TWO MAIN
ONES. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING TOGETHER AND HAD CAREERS THAT
WE HAVE BEEN COMPATIBLE WITH EACH
OTHER FOR 40 YEARS NOW WHICH IS KIND OF UNUSUAL. WE HAD
FALLING OUTS AND DISAGREEMENTS AND
STUFF, BUT WE ADHERE TO EACH OTHER BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN
EACH OTHER AND LIKE I SAID THE AWARD
ISN’T STRICTLY ABOUT ME. IT’S ABOUT SEVERAL PEOPLE. I CALL
THEM PEERS AND PATRONS. >> THE LAST TIME WE MET UP
WITH SMALL MOUTH BASS GUIDE DENNIS WHITESIDE CONDITIONS
WERE BRUTAL TO SAY THE LEAST. THE
TEMPERATURE WAS ZERO AND THE LAKE WAS FROZEN AND THIS IS
MUCH BETTER. SHORT SLEEVE, OH YEAH.
WE’RE HEADING DOWN THE MOUTH OF
THE SPRING RIVER AND SEE HOW MANY SMALL MOUTH WE CAN CATCH.
FIRST A FEW CATCHING TECHNIQUES.>> PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING
THAT’S A BASS IS SOMETHING TO
CONSIDER. THERE’S EVERY KIND OF COLOR AND
VARIATION ON LURES THAT YOU COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE. MOST
OF IT HAS TO DO WITH SOMETHING YOU
HAVE CONFIDENCE IN IN USING AND THAT’S TRUTH. DOESN’T
NECESSARY MATTER WHAT YOU’RE FISHING WITH
AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO CAST AND USE IT THE WAY IT’S
DESIGNED TO BE USED. IN MY VIEW
A LOT OF THE FISHING SUCCESS COMES DOWN TO WHERE IS THAT
FISH AT AND GETTING IT WITHIN A FOOT
OR TWO OF WHERE THE FISH IS WHEN
YOU MAKE YOUR CAST. OTHERWISE YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GET THAT
FISH. >> DENNIS ALSO POINTED OUT
THE IMPORTANCE OF SMALL MOUTH
CONSERVATION. >> ONCE YOU KNOW WHAT A SMALL
MOUTH IS STRING FISHING IT DOESN’T TAKE LONG TO BECOME AN
ADVOCATE. LOTS OF PEOPLE NOW THAT KNOW WHAT SMALL MOUTH
FISHING IS ALL ABOUT, CATCHING AND RELEASING THEM. I CALL IT
CPR, CATCH, PHOTOGRAPH AND RELEASE AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE
PEOPLE SIMPLY TO DO THAT AND FOR
LOTS AND LOTS OF REASONS. THESE
SMALL MOUTH AND FISH — ALL THE FISH IN THESE STREAMS ARE
RELATIVELY EASY TO CATCH, AND DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF THE
YEAR AND THE CONDITIONS OF COURSE, BUT YOU CAN ACTUALLY
TAKE OUT A LOT OF THE FISHERY IF
YOU DON’T PAY ATTENTION AND PARTICULARLY FOR SMALL MOUTH.
THEY’RE WILD FISH. YOU CAN’T REALLY RAISE THEM IN A HATCHERY
AND STOCK THEM IN THE STREAMS SO
CONSERVATION IS SOMETHING TO CONSIDER. THEY HAVE EVERYTHING
GOING AGAINST THEM IN A SENSE. THE STREAMS ARE BECOMING
SMALLER AND MORE SHALLOW, FILLING IN. NUMBER ONE, THERE
IS DEGRADATION OF A LOT OF THE RIVERS THAT CAN RECOVER, BUT IN
THE MEANTIME YOU HAVE A FISHERY THAT CAN BE DIMINISHED AS A
RESULT OF IT, AND THEN YOU’VE GOT FOLKS THAT CATCH AND KEEP
FISH, AND IF YOU KEEP THE LARGER
OF THE FISH THAT’S THE BRUTE POPULATION. THAT’S THE
POPULATION THAT IS MOST APT TO BE ABLE HAVE A SUCCESSFUL SPAWN
AND THE GENERAL TALK IS IT TAKES
ABOUT 10 YEARS FOR FOR THE SMALL
MOUTH BASS STREAMS TO REACH TROPHY SIZE, ABOUT 18-INCH
FISH, TROPHY MOUTH FISH AND HERE ON
THE SOUTH FORK THERE IS NO TELLING HOW MANY I HAVE CAUGHT
IN MY LIFETIME BUT I CAN ASSURE YOU THERE ISN’T AS MANY AS
THERE WAS 20 YEARS AGO AND PART OF
THAT IS PEOPLE KEEPING THEM. IN
A SENSE IT’S KIND OF A SHAME THAT MORE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW
ABOUT THESE RIVERS AND THE STREAMS. IT’S PART OF
NATURALLY WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT IS THEY’RE
NOT CROWDED AND YOU CAN FIND THE
SOLITUDE THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT IN SO MANY WAYS IT’S NOT
EVEN FUN. IT’S AS CLOSE TO WHAT THE
OZARKS WERE WHEN WE FIRST SETTLED IN THIS COUNTRY.
>> DENNIS WAS CATCHING HIS SHARE OF SMALL MOUTH AND THEN
SOME SO I COULD FEEL THE SCREWS TIGHTENING.
>> NO PRESSURE CHUCK. NO PRESSURE HERE AT ALL. JUST
BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE GO PROCAMERA AND I AM BACK HERE
DON’T EVEN HAVE A SEMI-PROCAMERA. HOPEFULLY YOU
CAN CATCH ONE. KIND OF A NICE DAY FOR IT. HOPEFULLY WE CAN
GET YOU INTO WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO TRY TO HOLD ON TO ONE OF
THOSE GOOD SMALL MOUTH BASS. >> I FINALLY DID CATCH ONE AT
THE VERY END OF OUR FLOAT. >> THAT’S IT. THAT’S IT.
STAY WITH IT. >> OH LOST HIM AGAIN. OH
GOSH — WAIT, I THINK HE MAY BE
STILL THERE.
>> I THINK YOU GOT IT CHUCK. APPROXIMATE STAY WITH IT.
HOW ABOUT THAT? NOT AS BIG AS DENNISS.
>> IT’S A FISH AND YOU GOT HIM.
>> IT’S A FISH. >> SO EXPLORE FOR YOURSELF
THE SOUTH FORK OF THE SPRING RIVER
AND CATCH YOU SOME SMALL MOUTH AND FOR ON THIS DESTINATION
