One of the things I love most about fishing is the element of surprise. Today, for instance, I finished work early and headed to the Guadalupe river to get a line wet. Since today was a stock day, I fully expected to be engaging in shoulder to shoulder "combat fishing" and was not too far off the mark.

What I didn't expect was that I'd finally get to meet TFF's own Chuck Dewey, aka Banker-Always-Fishing, and a few other gentlemen. Chuck is a very helpful and friendly member of this forum, and did not disappoint in person! Looking forward to fishing with him.

Another surprise was the appearance of a breeder trout. I'm told that after these fish reach a certain age, the hatchery releases them to live out the rest of their days in a more natural environment. Here's hoping this old fellow stays off the hook for a week, at least.



In other news, this little one prevented me from getting skunked, so all in all a very good day!

Awesome post. Always love meeting fellow TFF'ers. Chuck is a good one for sure just like all the others I have met! The love for the outdoors and fishing is the common denominator we all share. woot




Side Note: How big was that breeder fish. Looking at your video I would say 19 to 21 inches. hmmm Nice one for sure. hooked

It was great meeting Chuck and the others. The general consensus among the guys was 20 inches. The video doesn't do justice to how deep the colors were on that trout.

You definitely met a quality individual. I cant say enough about Chuck and what he has taught me since I have known him. Great guy, full of knowledge and always willing to help. I am looking forward to many more days fishing with my friend!

Thanks! Like you said I hope that fish can enjoy some time living outside a hatchery.
