So the evening starts with one of these, the proverbial 'fly in the eye' (or is that 'fly in the pie'?). In any event, I guess this fattie never heard about fish shades to protect the eyes...bugger still gave quite a little battle. A little quick surgery and I believe the important stuff of the eye is still intact...
The setting sun really livened up the colors of these babies...and there were six or seven more. A couple got off which really surprised me. So, I went to a size 8 black stone fly and man did the action really pick up!
Just gotta mention that I'm really enjoying this Loop Evotec five weight...I like it so much, I may get another one, tho' I'm tossing around the idea of the Goran Andersson Signature rod in a four weight...maybe at the end of the year if I've saved enough. We'll see then.
As always, I appreciate your stopping by and checking out my little fishing excusions.
