Winter Mermaid and Gretzky Steelhead

Maybe behind that rock.

Suz and I went after winter steelhead.  Unlike summer fish which strike like lightning, winter fish sometimes merely stop the jig or bait.  If in doubt, set the hook.  Hockey great Wayne Gretzky said "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."  When your line pauses, reef back and you may be rewarded with delicious winter chrome.

Winter Steel

I went to renew my Washington fishing license, and asked the girl at the sporting goods store, Kate, if she could also renew my marriage license since I had been fishing so much.  Kate looked under the counter.  "We don't have that form" she said.

"How long is my marriage license good?" I asked.

"How am I supposed to know?" she asked.  "I'm not from around here."

Well, she had me there.
