Jerry's facial expression changed instantly as he looked into the net to reveal what we had landed. A large male rainbow trout in full color, he told me 98% of the fish in that part of the river were browns. I was just happy I caught a fish, it could have been a goldfish and I would have been happy.
With full belly's we sat back, sipped our drinks and had good in depth brotherly talk as the years first fireflies lit up the holler. We sat, talked, and laughed until the last of the firewood was gone. By 10:00 we crawled in our hammocks and were out for the count. I slept like a small bear cub until 8:00am the next morning. It was some of the best sleep I have had in months.
