After mulling around on what fly to use, I settled for something a bit traditional, only I bastardized it....
In a follow up to my last GT post, I'll give you all a little bit of visual representation of what fighting one of these special fish is like. The first two casts were too far in front of the fish, that cast where the line tangled around the butt of my spare rod almost [...]
