The Marks’ Rewards
THE Icestorm aside this has been a pretty mild winter. But when Mark Williams, snr and jnr, came to the White I don’t think the temperature got above 30F the whole time. But the pair were hardcore, fishing hard and deserving the rewards, like Jnrs really nice brown 22″ above.
It would have been nice to get Mark 1 into a nice brown 2 but sometimes that is the way the cookie crumbles, Jnr got the other nice brown. The water level was going up and down like a newlywed’s nightie, which had the fish switching feeding zones multiple times during a day. Instead Snr had to “settle” for a several 19-20″ rainbows. He had a knack for getting this better fish, which sadly aren’t all that common in the river these days.
A few weeks’s later received a nice note from the guys along with these pictures. We seriously had a lot of fun despite a couple of rare mishaps. They treated it all with good grace, forbearance under tough conditions, and it was a great two days
“I just want to say that we really enjoyed our time with you and hope we have an opportunity for another visit. I’ve given your contact details only to those I felt could handle high adventure. Fishing with you is not for the meek and mild. You really are a “man’s man” guide.Again, we both thank you…and your wife… for the great hospitality and memories…especially two… we will always keep.
Hope your 2009 season keeps you afloat.
Mark & Mark Jr.
Thanks guys I’d fish with y’all anytime.
