JBuhler, Nice hair-do, but who was looking at you!!! Nice fish man. I never have fished a river with a hatchery run, so always C&R. But I can understand taking a hatchery fish for food. By looking at the fish, I would think a 1x or 0x flourocarbon tippet haul them in too. I tie my own leaders, pretty simple: 3ft of 25lb Maxima, 3ft of 20lb Maxima, 3ft of 15lb Maxima and 18 inches of 0X or 1X Florocarbon Rio tippet. Good job out there. We are stuck in the below Zero weather up here, and I am getting itchy as it has been almost a month sine I have fly-fished.
