Hookin up with Ricks

Today I had the opportunity to hook up with my Michigan steelhead brother JB of The Consummate Sportsman Blog fame.  JB is stand up guy and it's always good to get together with him and put a bend in the rods. 
The last time we hooked up was in the summer on his boat for some Lake Michigan Deep Water Chinny action.  We pounded a bunch of Kings for a memorable outing. 
Now it was my turn to return the favour.  We launched the Hyde at the Tippy launch under a fresh snowy backdrop.  The river traffic was amazingly sparse and the morning had the workings of one of those epic outings. 
Needless to say we put a few fish in the boat heavily slanted in JB's favour.  JB put on a clinic with is secret bait and his pink line.  LOL!  All kidding aside and without getting into specifics I have to give his techniques some props. 
The boy can fish and that's a good thing. 
The highlight of the day had to be be the giant resident brown, my double striper and JB's long and lean chrome bullet.
Maggots...Geesh!

Bahahaha. Words from a bitter, jealous man Norland. While you were away at work, we were beating up some serious metal heads.

Jealousy is a stinky cologne!!
