Probably the most excited either of us has ever been about a trout of this size. Dave and i haven't fished together in 3 years, and got to fish for 2 days this past weekend on his leave from serving in Iraq. After running around for a day chasing fish and getting skunked we found a couple on day 2. This fish was an incredible specimen, brilliant silver with almost blueish hues. Nothing beats fishing with your best fishing buddies, can't wait till August!
