Actually, looks closer to a cicada. I don't think a larger trout would care.

    ...like when we're fishing together and find ourselves too close to a cow?
  • It's donkeys. I don't trust donkeys.

    ...thats no donkey in the field. And, here's the proof...before and after noticing the cow. I can't believe you dropped your bamboo rod in the drink...

    Steven shies when he sees a cow?

    What would he do if he saw a bear?

    Im pretty sure if Steven ran into a bear, he'd offer a cuban and pull a bottle of Rothschild out of his backpack. He's a sophisticated angler...

    Ha, that's funny. You see that cast right in the bubble line? A thing of beauty.

    I really, really don't trust donkeys.

    That wasn't a bear. That was WetDog.
