|Rudy's 20-lb rainbow from Kootenay Lk.|
Soon we had all three rods pulling hair, and again, just minutes after the first fish, another one was on.
I grabbed the pulsing rod as line tore off the reel for what seemed like minutes. I passed it off to Rudy who played the massive rainbow like a pro, patient but intent on keeping the line tight and the hook set. Dave netted the 20-pound trout, with wild exclamations and hardy congratulations all around.
