I fished in shorts and a T-shirt. Not my typical fishing gear. Landed five micros. I wasn't fishing really hard this morning. I picked an open pasture with easy walking.
I fished just upstream of here.
In the last 80 yards of the stretch I had some amazing action. I broke one of my cardinal rules. I usually pick a potential spot to land a big fish before I cast.
I was about 4 feet up a bank that had an incline when it hit. The first thing it did was tail walk and I got a good look at a 22-23 inch male brown. I got it under control then slowly worked my way down the bank and got my net in hand. I must have relaxed pressure on it for an instant. It felt it and another head shake and it was gone. If I would have had someone with I would have a photo or 2 to share.
Fished out the stretch. I had two other browns larger than the one I hooked up on follow and turn.
Waiting until wednesday or thursday and doing a rematch. Won't be alone this time.
