Had so much fun yesterday I just had to go back.
I went a bit too early, not many fish on the flats. I over-lined several others and spooked them away... But the take on this fish was phenomenal.
About 1 rod length away, fish 1 foot from shore, me on a knee trying to hold absolutely still. I actually saw the fly get sucked up into its mouth; the fish exploded away leaving a plume of silt and a wake when I set the hook. Amazing fight from the ~20" class!
