Default New Water and New Tales

Well it's been a while since my last TR I've been stuck in summer school and haven't been able to get out as much as usual. But today I headed out prospecting a new stream. I was nyphing for about the first half hour with no luck so I switched over to a paracheute adams. It was the key, I missed some big fish today (12"=big). I also lost a monster beast 16"er becasue my rod tip got stuck in a tree. Well heres all the proof, enjoy.

Looks like you have it figured out pretty good there franzen! Fine job indeed.

Can I suggest you make sure your hands are wet when handling fish you're going to release? It helps preserve the slime that protects them from infection. Thanks.

I was taught when just starting to fly fish to always wet your hands before handling trout. I assure you all the trout caught today were handled properly.
