THE TRIP I CAN ONLY DREAM OF!!
If I could choose one place to go fishing and one place only, it would be the place I have seen while my eyes are closed and the dreams run wild. There is a place that I have a reoccurring dream about and it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. It is a stream where the trout grow as big as a lake trout. It is a place where every time that I manage to trick a fish into taking my fly, it snaps my leader. Broken fly rods and fly lines wrapped up in underwater root systems are a regular part of this dream. Many times I have been there fishing with friends, family and even people I have never seen before. At every bend there is a hole with huge trout hiding out in it. The banks are lined with waist high grass and every single hole is fishable. It winds through the wilderness like a huge snake.
The color of the water is a dark bluish green mix, with the holes looking almost black in color. In one dream I was pulled from the bank into the depths of the hole that seemed to be bottomless. Every time I awake from this dream, my heart is racing and I am sure that the dream was a reality. I have fought fish for what seems to be an eternity in this dream. Where is this place??? Does it really exist and is it just sitting there awaiting my arrival??? I hope so. Has anyone else discovered this spot yet and if so, have they been lucky enough to bring one of it's mammoth sized trout to hand?? I hope someday that I am able to find this place. I will be prepared for the unexpected, learning from all the mistakes I have made in my dreams. It will be a dream come true. Please, if you know where this place is, let me know. I promise if I find this place, I will take all of you there with me!!
Until Next Time.....Tight Lines !!!!!!
Thanks again O.B.N. and Red Tuna!!!
