    Default Valley fever

    Woke up this morning with Valley fever and there's only one cure for that...a little Parks highway. Took the day off and rolled north to find some hungry fish. Ended up getting the grand slam catching a dolly, 'bow, and grayling all out of the same creek. Twas a good day.

    No, didn't get anymore. Had to make it home for dinner, or else the wife would have been mad. Maybe next time.

    Nice report and good length to that fish, one word of advice though, when posing for the hero shot I find I have better results as far as rod longevity by biting the cork, not the blank.

    I usually try to but was in a hurry to get the pic and get the fish back in the water and forgot. Good advice though
