Lessons hard Won!
A nice day out yesterday. There are salmon scattered up and down the river. Most have only been in from the salt a few days (or hours!!!).
We had good takes in all zones but especially in the #4.
Lessons learned: Check your leader after it scrapes over some rocks and boulders!!! I know, I do check every few minutes for clients, ... but not always for my Girlfriend! After hooking up to a nice 16-18lb buck on a #6 Bomber, ... 10 minutes of good fight and POOF! The 14lb test fluoro tippet up and separates!!!
Such is life and Fly Fishing!!
If you,re in the area, drop in for coffe and a chat. Easy to find me, ... it's the Explorer with the VFG window sticker!
