Well, this is simple story about my line snapping last week and my very expensive Triple Trout flying out in the water.... with that said I also went in the water after it in about 4' of water at a local park in Tacoma. (I was just trying a new real and rod combo) no luck after an hour of freezing my behind off! People were standing around asking my girlfriend what I was doing and saying "look at that crazy white boy!"
It had been worrying me, not only because it was a $75.00 lure but I keep thinking about a kid getting it in their foot or something in the future.... so today, a week later I had this thought to go back and look again because the wind wasn't blowing and I mean the weather was so nice anyway...
long story short after 45 mins in the water today, people just staring again, I actually found it!!!!!!! I owe it to God by all means possible because the 43rd minute today I said a little prayer, "God please help me find this lure, it would just be such a uplifting experience and I've had a horrible week". The 44th minute I just gave up and with one final look to the left.... you wouldn't believe it, but there was my line wrapped around a Lily Pad!!!!! I started pulling and 15' foot of line later my baby came swimming to me with the same great action as when she left.... I then did my best impression of Mike Iconelli for approximately 5 minutes!
I hope somebody can feel my pain and enjoyment! jw
