Chris Adams and I have been fishing together on Blue River for twelve years now. I can remember the first time meeting Chris - he was fishing a stretch of water that bears his name.
When it comes to the trout derby, Chris has a determination that is quite rare. Here recently he is best known for his Bubba Bugger - a fly that produces fish after fish for Chris and anyone else that tries it. I think the success Chris has at the derby events is more that the fly he happens to be using. He lays out a game plan and then he follows through on that plan. He has the determination and staying power and he knows his fly-fishing well.
Today, Chris was presented the Susie Latham Shrader memorial award for weighing in the two day heaviest stringer of trout. It was my honor in presenting Chris the award. If I'm doing the math right Chris caught about twenty-one pounds of trout over the two day event.
Congratulations to Chris Adams for another fine performance.
