That is some heavy water to be pulling brownies like that out of....what size rod and tippet did you fish?....must not have been to heavy if you were fishing a parachute adams. Were you able to sight fish much?
Looks like an awesome trip, I'm extrememly jealous..
It was all sight fishing. 5 weight rods with 4x flourocarbon tippet. The water was super heavy (this river had risen about a foot in the previous day anyway); I lost more than I landed. I had to use every trick I know. The guide just figured you could hook them first and then try to figure out how to land them.
