I was just messing around with a new photo editing app on my phone last night up here in salmon camp and thought this turned out kinda cool.
As I like to say after a king breaks off or spits the hook: “May he live long and have many babies…” Looks like this guy may have done just that!
I ran across this pic of my ol’ trusty 20-foot Willie drifter last night and had to post it.
I took this shot as we were pulling off the Trinity River after chasing salmon and Steelies. It was a boy’s fun trip with me, K-Dog, Harry Ibach and Mad River Jimmy Davis and the boat was absolutely destroyed with rods all over the place, lures, roe slime and junk food wrappers.
Some folks might be mortified to see their boat in this condition, but I think this is exactly how a vessel should look after a bunch of friends hit the water together. It’s pretty obvious to me that a good time was had by all here…
Hre’s a little glimpse into a world not many of us ever get a chance to see…This is Buzz Ramsey’s work bench where he tunes, tweaks, trashes and tinkers on lures for Yakima Bait.
While developing the new Hawg Nose Flatfish, he spent countless hours here, trying to perfect the lure. “This photo includes many of the handmade versions of the Hawg Nose FlatFish 5.5 I made up during the development of this product,” says Ramsey. “As you can tell, it took more than a little R&D to make it meet our criteria of swimming in water speeds up to 5MPH; to develop a random skip-beat (hunting) action at 2-to-2-1/2 MPH and maintain that strike producing action all the way to 5MPH.”
