    big hen closeup - 02/24/05

    This is the prettiest fish I think I've ever caught. She is my new personal best for steelies.

    Easy tube fly?

    Nope, that's a home made bead my friend made, mostly made out of hot glue, glitter and a secret ingredient for color. The hook is a gamakatsu finesse wide gap.

    We did tie up some tube-eggs the night before and wraped them with glow in the dark chenile, we also used huge glow in the dark spin-n-glow's for indicaters by cutting off the fins.

    Had we not shown up at 1am I think we would have caught some fish based on our success the next day. When we arrived in the dark we had no prior visual of the river so it was hard to judge river speed and depth.

    We were fishing runs above tailouts. Water vis was pretty poor, I only saw a couple fish which I almost stepped on. I think we just lucked out to be honest, hit the right spot at the right time with the right river conditions when the fish were there. Smile
