Holy Shitballs Batman!

















This is no joke fellas. Fall chinook have nothing on this bad boy. Sam Sickles a now modern day legend from Hood River, caught this fish recently on a Columbia River Gorge River. Swinging a 117 RB Meiser (5/6/7 11'7"), with a Rio Skagit 450, 7' t14, 8 pound test and a Hickman Party Boy, Sam hooked this fish parted the ........... River with his hands and walked out fifty feet into the now dry river bed and grabbed the fish before the river filled up. A divine feat in itself! This fish measured 42'x25' and a true thirty pound specimen. YOU ROCK BROTHER!
