I was having some fun until I hooked onto a good size one and as luck would have it the rocks i was standing on or I should say trying to stand on were slick and I fell ass deep in the water and of course at the same time, I gave a little slack in the line and it spit the hook.
of course it came back at me and hit me in the nose and stuck.
so here I am sitting butt deep in cold ass water with a fly stuck in my nose and I am LOL trying to get my butt out of the water.
Fun times......right. and I lost the fish.
time today I've had reason to laugh. Wait till you fish the fly only section of the North Umpqua.
