Haven't made a post in a while; mainly because I have not done much trout fishing in a while (sadly). I did finally get out Saturday to explore some familiar streams after the unbelievable flooding the area experienced. While the fishing was not great, I did manage to hook into this thing.

Got my lure that I was trying to cross and retrieve back today.

So that means I'm only down $297 on that day instead of the $300 for my new phone. Laugh


Got a dozen or so browns today and a few brookies. Two of the browns were 18-19 and fun in the small water I got them in. Several other solid browns (15-17) too.

The bite really died around 11:00. Was up on brookie water by then and they weren't interested. Got 4 in about two hours. All the rest would just toy with my lure.

They were probably stuffed on hoppers. Never seen so many grasshoppers.

Wind kept blowing them onto the water and I'd watch them drift waiting for the strike and never saw one. The brookies were already full.

Those iPhones are tricky to cast right. Need a real stiff rod.

Gurth,

I find it much easier to pull hooks out with a shoelace or similar type small diameter rope. No poking it through your skin and no loosing a hook.

Sounds like you have some experience with this. Laugh


My first hook back in college in the early 90s on some stream near Coon Valley came out that way.

The other night I was by myself and doubted that I could pull it off. Still had a few hours to fish, so no way was I going home for help.


No biggie as pushing it through in that spot didn't even hurt as much as a shot would.

Fantastic pictures Ron! Thanks for sharing.
