Well everyone this post was suppose to have gone up last Friday, but i have been very busy lately with work. None the less i still have this session fresh in my mind. I got out late morning to my favorite freestone stream and upon my arrival I saw the trout rising. I had tied on the Hendrickson Nicheo dun to the end of my line. I made my first cast and was awarded with a healthy hard fighting wild brown. I got a couple more from the first run I hit. Then I moved up stream, casting at the occasional rise and likely areas. I managed a few more on the way the up. I came up to spot that has always given up a large wild brown. I watched patiently in hopes to see a rise. Then, there was a large nose that came up in the film. I got into position, and sent a drift. It was just a tad to the left, so i sent a second. The trout took the Nicheo without hesitation and man did my reel sing when i lifted the rod. The fight lasted for several minutes, as there wast much of current in the area to ad in tiring the trout. The trout dogged down in a deep cut and then, POP, went the hook. Bummer.
I regrouped and moved up a bit, I watched a nice seem with the ever so popular white bubble flowing down. I saw a rise, then another, but this one had a big nose, just like the previous trout. The story repeats, in that my first cast was just to the right, and the second resulted in the reel screaming. I hook this trout in about 8" of water at the very head of the run. He took off running down to the deep cut that the other one dogged me in. I applied the brakes and was able to get him turned around. My position this time had currents to my favor. I was able to tire the trout out so i could make the landing rather quickly.
After releasing the brown, I figured I was good. Only fished for a little over an hour but it was a blast. There where quite a few different bugs hatching and laying eggs. Caddis, gordons, bwo, hendricksons and even the Jersey skeeters(crane fly) were out in good numbers. So with "more than four" I headed on back to the car.
