High Water, Wind and Snow (a TR)

Post by ncguy » Mon Jan 21, 2013 9:10 pm

[report]

franzen and I grabbed the meat locker

and headed for the hills
Image

where we decided to fight the high water, wind and snow
Image

to throw some streamers in some water we knew held good fish but had never landed.
Image

The fish weren't where we expected them (bastards) but I finally got a take at the end of a swing. It was a good brown, actually the largest we had caught from this section of water.
Image

We continued to fight the current and the wind with no tugs so we decided to move to some different water. We had one good run in front of us, which I had to force franzen to fish before we left...yeah.

[report]Wow is all I can say right now. We've been fishing this stretch of water for a couple years now only making a few trips each year to it. We've hooked and seen big fish but had yet to land any. I actually believe this is a fish Dad had come up and bump a big hopper last year in the same run. Anyway as I started fishing the run, after trying to yell Dad into fishing it, I broke off somewhere on my backcast. I walk over to the bank pull out the meat locker and study each fly looking for one I had confidence in. I can't find one that pleases me and Dad walks over and points at one. "That one". I was a little unsure of his choice but proceeded to tie it on. I step back into the run and on the first swing I feel a bump. I set the hook, and come to the conclusion that I'm hung on a rock. Then the rock starts rising in the water column and begins throwing head shakes. "Holy shit, big fish!" I see dad out of the corner of my eye running down the bank carrying the net. I yelled at him "Put that fucking net down, if anyone is going to fuck this up it's going to be me". I scrambled up the bank and grabbed the net as I went, got downstream of the fish and had him in the net before he even had time to think about throwing the hook. It felt awesome, I was shaking and not from the cold mind, from pure exhiliration. We snapped some shots and sent the brute on his way. We still had good water ahead of us, but there was no need to fish it. We were content.

One last shot
