It could be one of greatest days there.
Finally my favorite Flav hatch started there. It likely earlier start than last year. But still fish madly fed on Caddis only. There were good and continuous rises.
I did hook two fishes soon by general Caddis dry pattern. They were not huge but good fighter. Although I couldn't catch them, it was a kind of good start. I was pretty sure that my selected fly matched the hatch.
This one was so beautiful and wild with its red band! And also good well jumped fighter.
This heavy torque stream made their tug so stronger. I thought It was really difficult to catch good size, even succeeded in hooking.
He had so wide body. 16inches/40cm
This 18.5inches/47cm had injured body, so I hesitated to put his pic here. But it was well experienced good one.
During long time fight with him, I was cheered up by floating boater. The comfortable drug's reverse sound made me so excited.
When he approached me, I believed I've almost done.
Then I lost his tension... The knot of tippet got loose... It was definitely my fault...
I could catch some after that also. I had good time there.
