Enlightened finally joined the club...

  1. After three years of flyfishing, Enlightened joined the "Double Digit club". Thursday she wiped a long standing skunk off. She hadn't caught a fish in about a dozen trips out. It went from frustration and desperation, to nearly depression and despair. Finally she put a fish in the net.
    So on Saturday, when we left the house she was a little more optimistic. I got her boat in the water, knotted a fly I'd tied that morning on, and sent her out while I wadered up and put a fly on. I hear a whoop, and see Enlightened connected to a fish which throws her hook on the fourth jump. I get on the water, row out where I want to set up shop, and before I can make a cast she's hooked up again. I hear a squeal of pure glee, and then "get over here! you need to check this out!" When I get over there, I'm shocked to see a real montster when she lifts the net out of the water. After I snap a few pics, I tell her to keep it. My dad asked me to keep him a big one, and this qualified. It was her first fish to ever break the ten pound mark. She's had a few close, and the one on Thursday was probably close to eight if we'd weighed it. She ended the day with four fish to my one. 2013 013.JPG 2013 026.JPG

  9. How many times do I have to tell you, do not lift wild steel out of the water. Nice fish girl, nice fish.
     
  10. I believe that she was fishing in a lake. That water was way to calm to be any Skinny water.
