I wanted to share an experience I had recently that was a truly special one. I have been searching a long time for a fish like the brown in the pictures below and the stars finally aligned to make it happen. All I will say is that it took place right here in Washington and you won't find the location easily. It took years and many a mile of walking to get to this point. It was caught on my 4wt with a 5x leader and 6x tippet with a hopper and took close to an hour to land. I had to wait until my friend Mike came to look for me because I could not land the fish myself. It didn't fit in the large net I brought but we were able to capture him with it and release him unharmed after the necessary photo and video shoot. Took lots of video from the trip and will be creating some sort of video edit from the trip in the near future. The fish measured 28". The rainbow wasn't too bad either.
