It's better than the reasons most teens play hooky, right?
Today, with my mother's permission of course, I skipped school and fished the Salmon with David Gallipoli. We crushed them. He caught some on streamers, some on dries, and one on a nymph, while I stuck to the big heavy stuff. Articulated streamers moved some beasts today. In the morning I caught some brookies and a bass, and I lost a HUGE tiger trout that will stick in my mind for long while. As the day wore on it got warmer and brighter and the fishing got slower, but was by no means bad or even mediocre. Late in the trip I took a big Rainbow, he rose in a slick to meet the streamer and tore down through the currant. We had such a good time we plan to go back for the evening rise tonight.
