Just when you think you are going to find this fish looking up and hard on a spinner hatch, they go and suprise you! The river was perfect yesterday evening but only a few fish showed themselves. Several missed takes to a sedge pattern resulted in me dropping down to a size 20 Parachute Emerger... only to find my 'prize' fish to be a small rainbow:
I found the brownies in the end. Eventually I hooked a good, solid fish, but as it burrowed towards the roots, it straightened my fine wire #20. So, back to find the bigger fish soon.
