No Contest

Went out at 9:30am with Chris Young from Chicago.  He is a member of the Lee Wulff Trout Unlimited Chapter there.  Chris uses both a spin rod and fly rod.  He fishes with whatever his fishing partner is using.

The robins egg blue skies made me wonder if we were going to do ok today.

40 yards from  the road my question was answered.

Chris caught his biggest small stream brown of his life.



Chris landed 35 brown on a gold panther martin and had at least another dozen long line releases.  Best day every for number by a large margin and his biggest brown in his life.

One hit with such ferocity Chris said he could feel it all the way to his toes.  Couple of the long liners were 17-18 range trout that got off at shore.

I batted clean-up and landed a dozen browns and 1 brookie.
