rainbow this morning

Went fishing this morning, got  worms off the lawn last night, I got to the lake at 5am put my new jon boat in and away I went. Hooked the first trout in about 15 minutes lost it trying to net it. Then the rain came down, and down and down. Caught a second trout about 20 minutes later in the rain and put it in the cooler 21 inches about 3 lbs. I am now soaked from head to foot and starting to shiver.  The rain  never let up and an hour later hooked my third rainbow 22 in. about 4 lbs. The rain letup and I came home , 2 fish bright red meat for supper tonight. Cost about 10 times the value but worth every penny.

Do they dislike getting wet like deer do?
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler
