Springer fishing, the ultimate mind game

It ain't fly fishing, but that doesn't mean your mind won't be tested.  Sitting on anchor and waiting for the takedown is nearly the antithesis of fly fishing.  You aren't moving to the fish, the fish are moving to you.  And sometimes it can take days.  On this trip, we waiting for 40 hours before we had a run of consistent action.  It can really test your will, but the mayhem that takes place while fighting a 30lb Springer, has me hooked.  

Potter fighting a 30lb hatchery fish that was lost at the boat!

Yes sir
