Rod Stewart once sang: "Every picture tells a story don't it?" and this picture shows the moment of the strike and one armed hook-set that Josh recorded on his camera two nights ago. This is a screen grab from the video and is not a contrived photo at all, showing exactly the wide-eyed and shocked look at the moment of the strike when he's holding the stern light in his other hand. We both still laugh at his next move, which was to ask me what he should do with the light, now that he had a fish on. As I mentioned before, I merely told him to put it back down. LOL (I'm brilliant in a pinch.) Note both oars in operation at this time. This shot shows the moment of exultation we shared upon realizing we actually had captured the strike and one-armed hook-set on video and were indeed into a fish. Considering the number of times people have been rowed in the pool with a camera all set to capture any action and then failed to hook a fish, we were stoked, to say the least, given this was an unexpected bonus. Another action shot showing Josh putting the boots to the fish so that I can net it. Note one oar is missing and now floating some 10 feet away but we were otherwise engaged so left that problem for future reference. And just to prove I actually did net it in the end, here's the final screen grab from the raw video of the event. The final product might be interesting but I suspect there will be some editing work to get through before anything can be made of what Josh has. I'm stoked to have been a part of it and hope it will inspire some interest in others who may want to try rowing in the Tyee Pool someday. Oh, the loose oar floated right back to the boat and was retrieved with no effort, so in the end, all worked out nicely. Sure, it would have been even better if the fish had been a Tyee, but nobody here is complaining. Well, except for the guy I had out last night, who didn't get a sniff. Take care.
