Jeff Hutchison image
REGULAR visitor Jeff Hutchison sent me this picture taken at The Narrows 3 years ago which is one of the better images of the haunting nature of the fog on the White I’ve seen. I asked Jeff if I could share it on the blog and he gave me the ok and the story _ thanks a bunch Jeff.
Go for it….. we travel from our West Columbia, Texas home to fish the White 2-3 times a year and of course shop at the fly shop. The late Harvey and June Dilbeck are my wife’s uncle and aunt. We still have a small cabin near Wildcat Shoals. That picture- It is the first wade area before you get to the second island at the Narrows was haunting that day. It had been raining for 3 days- 3 units were running all the time. We threw the works from dry to wet flies- some flatfish and little cleos lures…. came away with some nice fish… I was all the way down where the last island dumps into the main river below the Narrows and looked upriver. My son Mikey had just thrown a olive wooly bugger and my friend Rick Patterson was searching the shoreline in the fog. I turned and snap the pic- have on my desktop since then. Haunted by waters. It is calling me back right now.
