Triple Play

Cliff Pirch just amazed me. Not with a fish catch, but by doing three things at the same time that most anglers struggle with individually. He made a cast, and while it was sinking, opened up a storage hatch and fetched a fresh worm, threaded it on a second rod ... all while his foot was on the trolling motor positioning his boat. While I was typing this entry, he set the hook again ... reeled ... then backreeled (who backreels anymore?) and a few minutes later, lands another 3-pounder. He is getting close to 15 pounds now.
