wife outfished me

We stopped for a few hours at the Colorado River on our way to Carbondale. The wife was not really interested in stopping to fish. I needed to at least throw a few lures to get my fix. She ended up kicking my butt with 8 BOWS and 1 BROWN. I caught 3 BOWS. A few hours went by and I could not drag her away from the river. If we did not have plans in Carbondale, she would have stayed till dark. She caught all her fish on the HD Trout in the Trout Natural color. I caught mine on Silver/Black. The lures worked great with the high, fast flowing water. Just cast them out and hang on. The current does most of the work. She kicked my butt, but the good news is now she will not be so hesitant to stop next time.

Good strategy on your part to let her out fish you. Women sometimes do the same by letting us think we are right.

Anyways, congrats on all of the nice fish and the memory you guys created together. Sounds like you guys had lots of fun.

And she's better looking than you.
I used the J spec for the first time the other day and I was impressed with the action. Caught a couple of LMB on the hot pink. Plan to use it tomorrow night on some walleye.

Well played, get her hooked on the sport then you can take all kinds of fun trips together.
