A fish like this amazing river brown is special no matter what, but having my wife @kristina_h_parkinson with me made it even more memorable.
I actually saw this fish the other day. It hit my transmitter and I spent the rest of the day trying to get it to show up to no avail. That night my wife could see how excited I was about the date, it was literally all I could think about. The next morning that fish was still consuming my thoughts and she offered to go with me to find it again. My initial thought was that it was unlikely, but I couldn’t turn down the invitation, so off we went.
Luckily, he hadn’t moved far and should have been hungrier than the day before. He was fully engaged this time and I think Kristina screamed as loud as I did when she realized I had hooked the fish we came for. We grabbed the net, took a few photos and set off. I couldn’t believe it, I didn’t do another cast and we headed home. The moral of the story? If you’re wife says let’s go fishing, you better go!
