I live about 17 miles from Rocky Ford. I've fished there a few times.ehh...my opinion, when you start talking bout 2ft long plus trout that are thick slabs....5wt is a little weak to land them in a reasonable amount of time without playing them to death
Krusty, flyawayfish44 is just messing with you. Just a bit of friendly ribbing is all. If it is any consolation, I know exactly what you are talking about, especially when it comes to the Rocky Ford fish. They can be a pain to land and I throw slack at them all the time hoping for an early release. I do the same at the end of almost all my fights with fish I plan to release.Don't give a fuck what you think about you think I want you to think. I stopped enjoying trophies and hero shots decades ago.
You'll have an idea in about 30 years how right you were with this statement.I can hear him sayin it now! "Landing fish? That's a young buck's game. Yes sir, I reckon these days knowin' a fish took my fly is more than enough for me!"
