Fishing the "Upper Jurassic"

Here’s a little gem of a story featuring Washington state guide Jack Mitchell, who managed to turn the advice of Larry Lee Palmer’s father into even more durable memories on the cold Upper Columbia. We added a few turns of phrase to our angling lexicon from this one, including ‘bobbercators,’ ‘hydrotherapy,’ and ‘foam is home, baby.’ “Mitchell roused us the next morning. He’s bald, burly and has a non-stop patter geared to enthuse his constituency. Fishing rods are ‘sticks,’ and ‘hydrotherapy’ is the relaxation and insight gathered while plying the river with sticks.”
