A Real Fish Tale ... at Hot Creek, Eastern Sierra Nevada

Catching BIG BERTHA ... (after a couple of years trying by a proud 15-yr-old)...

... and then releasing.
Catch-&-release at its most satisfying at Hot Creek.

Bertha seems to be instructing the fisherman about how this catch and release thing works.

Btw Tash, thanks for the wonderful email, and the details of you home and trip. I will be keeping you in my prayers.

Glad Big Bertha was released again, now there will surely be a lot more little Berthas.

Great photos of a great "finish." I'd like to see the ones that got away!
