After seeing that the fly was pretty beat up, I sent it through the lane that has held several big fish in the past but always ended in heartache. Sure enough, there was a heavy fish feeding there, and after a few escape tactics, snapped a pic and sent her on her way. Cheeks were unbelievable.
Heard that the BWO hatch is beginning out east and that in turn, it was a parking lot out there. I'm not a fan of the shoulder to shoulder game. Tried to avoid that area and was glad I did. Brennan Manning waxed eloquent in my earbuds, while I got settled in and started off the day with a personal best, a rainbow just over 23" and so fat I couldn't grab him. Some serious teeth too.
I've got a CatchSnapRelease.com shoot coming up out at Pyramid. Bookmark this blog and check back in for that.
