    Default The madness continues

    This night thing is the way to go. Made the trek again last night after we picked up some guys at lamberts, home of the throwed roll.

    The fishing started and stayed hot. Hot fly was anything with rabbit or pine squirrell, sizes ten to eight. Brown, black, and olive were the ticket.

    Four of us picked up one trout shy of fifty, twelve to myself. Of those betwen all of us we had seven go 20-22 inches. One of which I caught and was a new PR for myself.

    Hilight of the night though wasn't from a caught fish. Walking across a flat me and my buddy Andy saw a fish just hanging in some slack water that we about stepped on, a brown that was an honest 26 incher guessing on thevlow side. HUGE. I'm ready for the fall run.

    Sounds like you're into this deep.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    To keep from cluttering the boards with reports, I'm going to just continue this thread for the future.

    Kev, PM on the way, While I don't usually have a problem telling people where I fish without getting to specific, with this post it probably wouldn't be a wise idea.

    Bummed a ride down with a buddy again last night and when we get to the parking lot the water was still up so we had to wait for it to go down. We picked a few up here and there on pine squirrel streamers and olive mohair/dubbing loop leeches. Finally the water dropped and we moved down river a bit and I picked up a couple more.

    Fishing was slow so we got out and walked back up to where we had been first having some luck. We were picking up a few here and there when my buddy stuck something really good.

    The fish took him into his backing twice, on his 9 ft. 5wt. TFO pro. this thing was all over the place and There I go chasing it like a doofus with a net... that was no where near big enough. Finally it looks like it is getting tired and i swoop the net down to scoop it up... big mistake. This thing just got mad made another tear into my buddies backing... between my legs. Now i'm tripping all over the place trying to not break this guys fish off. He battles it back in again and I finally get it's head in the net.. I repeat, JUST the head. I got it out and bear hugged that fish and was no way letting go. We get up to the bank and it is the absolute biggest brown that I have ever seen in person.
    Of course neither of us has a camera so we snap a few pictures with our phones and mark where it's length was on my rod. Revive the fish and she is on her way.

    We catch a few more fish and call it a night. I finished with 8 and he hauled in 15 or so, we were nymph fishing with streamers adn he is a significantly better nymph fisherman than I am, But I picked up more on the streamers and swinging.

    Get to the truck, and measure out hwo long the fish was... a full 30 inches and fat. If i had to gess a weight I would have put this brown at 10 or 11 pounds and healthy. She was just a massive fish. I am definitely going to be heading back agian sooner than later.

    Sounds like quite a fun time Lancer! I bet doing the jig over the line was nerve-wracking! Any good phone cam photos?

    Rip, It's absolutely delicious with some of the best rolls ever. Plus it's fun to catch food. They have a designated "roll thrower" no one else is chucking them around. But i wont say that i signaled for one and then "accidentally" missed it and let it hit the person sitting next to me.

    Gator: I got two and my buddy has one. I'll try and post them when he gets them up loaded because I sent them to him. They are grainy and not of good quality but they show a littel bit about how big this fish was.

    I very much understand the lack of quality in cell-phone cameras, still looking to see the photos of the monster!

    There are two more from my phone that I sent to him to upload. This is probably the worst of the three but you can get a feel for the size of this thing. Took an olive mohair leech, in the bottom jaw you can see where someone foul hooked it, we couldn't get it out though.
