    Brian Sloss got a reaction from patfish for a article, NFOW/11 Point   
    On Saturday I was one of four guides taking folks from the Ozark Fly Fishers out on the North Fork of the White.  Brian Wise was the lead guide and I thank him for including my boat on this trip.  Brian has some of the best streamer tying videos on the internet, look him up at Fly Fishing the Ozarks. Anyway, I was assigned Bill and Jerry for the day and they were great guys. The river was up, but not quite an ideal level.  The shoals were ripping with some pretty big waves.  We concentrated on finding seams of current off the main channel, particularly towards the end where it deepend a little, just so we could get down to the fish.  We didn't catch a ton of fish, but we certainly found some.  The rainbows we caught were fat, pretty, hard fighting and wild.  The North Fork can be challenging sometimes, but I love it and everyone should give it a try sometime.  We also got a couple of brown trout and the bonus of the day was 3 smallmouth.  On Sunday, Mel and Glenn, from the same group, joined me for a half day on the 11 Point.  We met in the morning and got off the river right as about an inch of rain started to fall on the river. That said, fishing was red hot for the 4 hours we fished. It was nice to be home.

    Took Mark on a guide trip today. The fishing was hot and cold as the fish were concentrated in certain areas due to the low water. Still scratched out about 25 fish, the highlight being a 23.5 inch trout (probably 7lbs). Mark hooked her in a deep hole and it took every bit of 10 minutes or more to land her on 5x tippet. We had to chase her about 100 yards downstream. After a couple quick pictures, she took off with the same fighting attitude she displayed during the fight. By the way, we both about lost our minds when she launched herself about 3 ft out of the water about a minute into the fight. www.elevenpointflyfishing.com
