Location: Russian River, Alaska

After walking down from the upper parking lot, I crossed over to the far side and began working my way up a small set of rapids. Dead drifting an egg bead beneath an indicator fishing for large 'bows, my indicator "ticked" slightly as it made its way along the current. I set the hook, but missed. Stripping my line in, I felt a slight weight on the end. Upon inspection, I discovered a Timex Expedition watch with a badly water-logged band. It was still ticking. Returning home, I bought a band and still wear it to this day.

Merry Christmas to All!
