|Yours truly in action|
My wife had gotten hold of the camera and as she likes to look at me in action she took a shot without me knowing about it. This is a little lake that for ages has been known for it's big brown trout.
My doughter and my father rather enjoy reading than fishing.
|Yours truly trying his best in front of the shelter|
Finally some trout action. A nice brown trout tired and ready to take.
Since I never carry a net it's the job of the left hand to get the trout up out of the water.
Yours truly without feet but with a trout in his hand. No wonder I could't fish so much this year. Don't think I would trade my feet for that trout. Enough joking. I have a medical condition that makes me live with pain constantly (24/7 all the year). I have to take pain killers every day regularly just to get by. Sometimes it's a little better but other days it's as if the pain killers just don't work. This day and every day with some fly fishing it's a lot better.
|The trout and the gear that took him|
Since the trout was badly hooked I had to take him. Furthermore I could see that it was a stocked trout and not a natural. The native trout I always put back if they aren't hurt. Even a trout this size gives good sport with this gear. I had my Sage SP 904 AFTM # 4 and a clear intermediate line (Lee Wulff TT Line). Looking to the left of the bood spot you can see the fly. It's not a tiny fly but I'm planning to share some thoughts about it in the future. Since my father has a heart condition we didn't stay long but everyone was pleased and that is what matters. This was in the beginning of May 2011.
