A New Normal Story

Rio Grande Chub

Rio Grande Chub

As part of our isolation routine my wife and I walk our dog down by the river. Social distancing observed, we can get out and get a little exercise. There is a drainage ditch along the way full of 2-4" fish. My curiosity got the best of me so I put together a long rod, some 7x tippet, a split shot, an Owner tanago hook and a tiny bit of worm. Had fun! I believe these are Rio Grande Chubs.

I hope all you readers are well and having some fun in spite of our current situation. Be safe and God Bless.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
