Wow! The condition on the north stretch of the Rush I was on was extremely poor. Very low and stagnant in many many stretches. Lots of decay and dead bivalves. Will be unfishanle if it stays like this. Not sure if there was a run off event of manure or not, but this is not going to be good. We need rain and a lot of it. Hooked my first 20" of the year. R

I've seen some of your videos. Plenty of nice fish...you need a bigger net.

I haven't fished that stretch of the Rush in years - that's a very nice fish (and I liked your expression after it flopped out of the net...I can relate, haha). Do you fish that stretch often? Get into brookies with any regularity?

I like that stretch, but it was terrible that day. Not many brooks from the rush in my experience. R

I would have swore a lot more on the video than you did if I lost that brown, nice fish though. You need a larger net.

I trip over a larger net. That one is 19" x9" and is the right size for the commando wading I like to do. That was a 1:1000 deal. The hook got anchored I just the right way to shake free of her mouth. Got a decent vid and pic anyway. ;). R
