Trout fishing isn’t usually about competition, but when you’re hot, you’re hot. This last Sunday, after briefly describing my morning to another fisherman – how I was hooking up on #16 Princes and #18 caddis pupae every other cast while others looked on in dismay – they noted:
“It’s a great feeling catching fish while others can only watch. Everyone on the river starts fiddling with their gear, switching flies over and over. Then, they just leave.”
Yes, it’s a great feeling.
Keeping your head, knowing it never lasts, is always the hard part.
Throwing dries to fish, while they try staying out of reach (not happening)
