imageimageimageMy fishing buddy and we’re having coffee talking about what part of the river we were going to fish , at that very moment I got a call from Mike M   He and his wife had canoe’d the day before, ran into a log jam and went over. It was only two miles from where we were going fishing  So small change of plan I grabbed my Garrett ATpro and we headed out  ( work before play) We met up with Mike in about an hour The spot was a sharp bend with very swift currents. I had to go up river to get across, I worked my way toward to log jam carefully I was on my toes up to my chin. Mike said I was rite where it happened. The bottem was all gravel inbetween large rock. I worked outward from the log they hit it was very clean 20 minutes not one peep from my ATpro, then the sound I’d been looking for a great ring hit. With the current,depth and rock it was challenging to get the ring into my scoop. Second try I came up with it. Once back across the river Mike helped me up the bank and we headed back to our truck. We headed out to our kayak / fishing trip. Bug were bad fishing was poor. But I had a big smile all day after that tough , fun recovery.
