The inspiration for this post comes from my buddy Jimmy Fee. Over the weekend, he was working one of the big outdoor shows in Jersey, and managed to sneak away from his booth long enough to get in on the hot trout action at the mobile pond. He texted me the three photos below. In frame one at left, we see Jim hooked in the back of the neck by the young Norman MacLean next to him. In the middle, we have Jim power swinging on a fish. In the text accompanying that photo he wrote, "Jimbo getting tight. 'Out of my way, kid.'" In the final frame, we see Jim sharing a trophy shot with his new pal. Kudos for teaching the lad the rod-in-mouth photo technique, though given that 4,582 people held that rod and it's flu season, I'd have advised against that. Anyway, the whole communication got me thinking about these mobile trout tanks, and some of the nonsense I've seen happen around their carpeted shorelines.
