Slip sliding away

Jason Christie is down to one hour left to fish, with just two little keepers in his livewell. He may think it's out of reach, but one or two key bites is all it'll take to get right back in the hunt.

I can't imagine what it's like to think that you've missed out closing the deal for a third time. He doesn't seem rattled, but there have to be a million thoughts swirling through his head.

As I typed this he flipped a jig under a dock float and reared back on a good fish. His rod bent for a second, then went slack.

That might've been the one. At the very least, it would've been a meaningful step.
