|That is a first for me!|
I eventually put on a black Woolly Bugger, and that moved a few wild trout. Unfortunately they were faster than my reaction was. Eventually a deeper pool was reached, and I put a few casts through before a sharp pull and big flash followed by a snap occurred. I pulled back four feet of leader. I knew I had just been beaten by a fairly sizable wild trout. No doubt a wind knot was the culprit.
The decision was made to change locations and go after stockies. Luckily an olive Woolly Bugger brought to hand a good brown and brooky. Next time should be different, the water is progressively getting warmer.
