IT'S ONLY IN MY DREAMS !!!

This is my post for Red Tuna and O.B.N.'s contest they are putting on.


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!!!

  5. Grey Wolf,
    Thanks a lot bro. If a person doesn't dream then things become to set in stone. Only thing stopping someone from finding their dream is lack of trying. One day I will find that dream stream and when I do I will set up my teepee for life and smoke my peace pipe until the sun goes down :) Tight Lines bro.
