    It's Early But . . .

    ANTICIPATION
    Get Streamers Tied
    listen to the worm folks
    -------
    .. A nice 22" buck Rainbow Trout was taken on a worm at the Duck Creek Highway 191 Culvert Pool yesterday. It was bright, feisty, and very colorful. It was cooked on a grill in foil with lemon, sage, and bacon grease - the flesh was on the pinkish side.
    .. Bigger fish were not landed, and several were seen jumping up the little water fall debauching from the corrugated pipe.
    .. Reports from the worm-tubers around the Grayling Creek Estuary highlight the catch of fish of the same class. Gulper fishers continue to comment on the bright fish of good size taken from the narrows up to the mouth of the river on the Madison Arm of Hebgen Lake.
    .. So we quickly dug out the "big & ugly" boxes and took inventory. The streamer stash was also examined for completeness and diversity. The mouse collection was scrutinized for possible additions.
    .. It's not quite time to expect the submarines in any number - but the anticipation of the fleet is always good for the visceral juices.
    .. We mention this now, (while the fishing is still just a bit on the easy side,) so that the best excuse for a stint at the bench will be foremost in the cerebrum. Just in case anyone asks.
