The first fish that I'd call decent was particularly colorful, and came from a pool that is ussually really good but was oddly unproductive all through 2016. I was glad to get him there.
The buttery, gorgeous brown bellow was by far the nicest fish of the day. Catching trout like this out of a stream that I love as much as any of my family and friends makes me extremely happy. I would give an arm and a leg to save this stream for eternity, I really would.
