Wow! That was one of the best my fishing day ever. It was a foggy day with a light rain. At 8 am Ive hooked a Fish at the deep water and about 3,5 meters from the shoreline. At that time I couldnt even imagine how big that Fish was and how long it will take to play with it. In the beginning the Fish was doing like a dead man stopped, lied down on the bottom and paid absolutely no attention to me. I was trying to move it a little bit forward, than backward but had no success. Suddenly one fisherman from my right hooked a chum and his fish crossed my line and my immovable Fish! Fortunately I havent lost my Fish, more over it started to move down the river. Weve been walking for 30-50 meters, than the Fish stopped again. And after 30-40 min. its started to fight. And only at that time I could saw it: it was a huge silver Chinook more the 50lb weight. The most beautiful fish Ive ever seen. Weve been fighting during a lot of time. Ive tired so much but the Fish was not tired at all! My buddy was helping me to go through the rivers rift, big stones and quite deep creeks down the river. And finally the Fish became a winner! Ive lost it. AFTER 3 (THREE) HOURS FIGHTING!!! Can you imagine it, guys? That what I call fishing. After that Ive caught two Chinooks more but they were smaller. Sharp hooks!
