As I sit here in my office on a Saturday wishing I was on the river, I think back to warmer times and remember this fish. I was on the sticks when this guy came to net, so I can't take credit for catching him, but I was fortunate to have charged batteries and a chance just to see it. 26 inches on the tape, which is about the width of the smiles RKJ and I had. I can't wait until Spring.
That's it, I'm outta here. I'm going home to tie some big, articulated uglies and ship my 8 wt. off for repair.
