Default Valuable Lesson Learned (i.e. sharpen those hooks!)

So, I fished the Deschutes for about six hours yesterday, and had an overall great time. Weather was great, and the fish were hungry.

I caught a total of three fish, two nice redside rainbows and a whitefish. I probably had a hundred takes while fishing an indicator rig, and probably a dozen total hookups, and lost all but three .

The fish on the Deschutes do fight with an extra bit of vigor, but I think had I had razor sharp hooks, my catch rate would have been much higher. I am definitely buying a hook hone before my next trip to lessen the frustration a little bit. I still had an amazing day, and I was excited that I was so easily able to "match the hatch", but man... lost a lot of good fish out there.
