My Story

Reeling in the lure the fish took it and ran down river taking line. That was the first run. I was able to turn her and reel in some line. She saw the boat and took off across the river, into the current. That was the second run. I managed to turn her again and take back some line. Then she took off again headed up river and I was not sure if I was going to stop her or not. That was the third run. I was lucky she was getting tired and I was able to take back some line and reel her in towards the boat. Then my friend Ed did a great job and got her into the boat. That was the tug that dreams are made of.
