Mr. Bob at the Bend

This in from Ron Thomas:

I had the privilege and pleasure to fish with "Mr. Bob" Still and his son and daughter-in-law David and Charlotte on the day after Thanksgiving at Nacoochee Bend.  As soon as we were in the water, "Mr. Bob" hooked and landed a nice rainbow.  It didn't stop there--it seemed that every time that he picked up the rod, he was on fish.  On one occasion, I saw a nice rainbow not far from where we were standing--I showed the fish to "Mr. Bob" and before I knew it, he had made the cast and hooked that fish.  He played the trout like a pro and before long the big bow (the one in the picture) was in the net.

Oh yea, David and Charlotte caught fish also--but this trip belonged to "Mr. Bob".  Thanks to the Still's for fishing with Unicoi and for giving me the opportunity to fish with them--what a joy!  By the way--"Mr. Bob" is 94 years young--can't wait until he's 100!
