Today I spent an afternoon hooking into some good fish using Pheasant Tail nymphs, Rusty Spinners, and a variety of Sulphur dry fly patterns. The Sulphur's hatched around 2:30PM and lasted 5:30PM.
It was an absolutely gorgeous day filled with a lot of fish. I lost track of the total number of fish I landed but the last fish of the afternoon made my day one to remember.
I had switched to from the Yellow Parachute Sulphur when I came to a nice deep hole where I hoped a good fish was lurking. Just my luck, after my first cast into the run I hooked into a good fish and I didn't realize how big it was until the line went screaming by me downstream. Then I saw the bright pink hue and silhouette of a massive female trout. I knew I had to play it carefully because I was fishing 5X tippet with the low water conditions and I successfully landed this beautiful Rainbow!
