We won't spend too much time discussing the rainbow the came up and tried to eat a dry on the end of my line, only to be "refused" as I set the hook too early and missed the fish entirely. After Brent's fish broke off we waited until fish began rising again. Then Brent went back to throwing the dry. At one point he offered me the rod and asked if I wanted to try? I did and we set up on another active fish. After several drifts, I decided the fish wasn't going to eat. At that moment the fish rose to the dry and the white mouth came open. The rainbow took the fly and the fight was on. Donnie manned the anchor and oars while Brent handled the net and video camera. The fish came to the net after a couple runs, three jumps and some deep diving. We snapped some photos and released the fish. It had been a while since there has been a quality fish like this in the boat and it sure felt good. I am looking forward to the next trip out to fish dries for feeding fish.
