My friend and I are on the way to a well-known river to both of us for a day of fishing . Friend is a fly fisherman who is trying to convert me to this cult. And I am trying to master spinning fishing. The stage is set for a little competition – Fly vs. Spinning. Last time we fished together I lost 2 fish to 1. We will see who is victorious on this occasion. Weather is sunny, with calm winds, just a beautiful day. Water levels seem normal. From the start I have a hunch that I am going to lose. My worries start to materialize in the first hour. My friend catches two trout with his own spuddler streamer. Both younglings, but still an excellent start.
