And the Big one got away!!!

My Dad was a great fisherman!!! He loved to fish in the Columbia River between Hood River and The Dalles Dam. His secret was "Atomic Strike" balt!! Boy did it smell!!!!! I use to have to balt the hooks and your hands smelled all day! And his homemade Bamboo fish poles. This picture is just one of many surgeons he caught in his life time. He fished until He passed away at 84yrs. He love the Columbia River! He love to eat the fish he caught too. We had fish many nights for dinner with fried potatoes!
