    Default Caney Report 5/4/07

    Made it a half day today at the ole' job and headed for the Caney around lunch. They stopped generating around noon so I fished right below the dam...everywhere else was too high to wade.

    I had a great day...landed about 15 rainbows and browns...mostly on a size 20 soft hackle...the others on a zebra midge...even had a few hit the dry I was using for a indicator.

    I had one of those..."one that got away" today. It was a really nice rainbow that jumped several times and I had him ready for the net and bam...he was off!!! Ugh...he was really pretty and fought more than any fish I've hooked in my short ff career.

    I had a couple of questions. Is there some trick to getting the fish close enough to using your own net...I just seem to never be able to get them that close. Also...do you guys just roll the dice on taking your digital cameras out on the water? Waterproof case? Just curious.

    Use a quart-size zip-loc bag. Electronics are way sensitive to moisture.

    I wish I had thought of that last week, before doing the backstroke in the Middle Prong.

    I use 2 ziploc bags. I put my cell phone in one of the bags and then place it upside down into the other bag and then roll em up and place in my vest. After stepping in water over my head earlier this week I have found that this method works great.

    Getting fish to the net is a different matter. I have seen some people just wear them down, or play them down. I have always been taught to keep that rod tip high.

    I bought a digital camera just for fishing. It's a Nikon SL7. Nice camera, good quality 7 megapixel images. I loop the wrist strap to the D ring on the top left of my chest and slip the camera into the pocket below. Taking pictures and fishing can be tricky but I think it's worth the effort.
