Got lucky

Post by DaveR » Mon Aug 08, 2011 9:45 pm

Broke a guide on my 8wt last outing so I brought the 5wt along today too. Not 5 minutes into fishing I broke the tip off my 5wt so it's back to the 8wt minus one guide. Good thing because it would have been tough to land this on a 5wt.
3 feet of him, a personal best.

Wasn't it just a few short months ago you were looking for your first?

Damn that's a nice fish and look at that fly thingy stuck in his lip.
Being out on the water in the kayak is the prize. Catching fish is the bonus.
