Yesterday my man and I went to check out a location that I was given a heads up on by my fellow fishy friend David….a place with some staging pre-spawners. We mostly caught big brown trout, but there were a few rainbows and even a few brookies mixed in as well – in the few hours that were were there we lost count on how many fish we’d caught, I’d guess 30+. They were jumping out of the water everywhere – feeding on almost anything – dries, streamers, midges! Definitely the biggest fish I’ve landed on my fly rod so far. Thank goodness for my Nomad Mid-Length net. I really couldn’t have landed them myself without it! I <3 Nomad! We had so much fun. After a stressful week, it was just what the doctor ordered.
And FYI I got ‘schooled’ on Facebook and Instagram about fish slime/bacteria — apparently I did a bad thing by putting the the fish down, and then releasing it etc. So next time I’ll think twice about how I go about taking my fish photo ops. #savethefish So, let’s please move on now and be happy. Thanks.
