Big Fish

Tuesday and Wednesday were both great days, but Wednesday definitely produced more fish. Although what I think was the biggest fish returned a hook to me that was bent at 90 degree angle, we did catch some pretty substantial fish. Quite a few over 30" with plenty of 100' plus runs and cartwheels thrown in for fun! The biggest advantage I've found with the spey is that you don't have to strip any line in after a long swing, just pick the line up, anchor and bombs away! Try the spey, I think you'll like it. I picked up a Temple Fork 12'6" #6 for $300,and it was well worth it for this creek. I'll try to get the pics up from those days...
