larger bow plus a 2 toned one

Postby Emerson » Tue May 22, 2012 7:02 pm

I traveled to beyond Reading PA and found some rainbows eating caddis for a long time.These fish were large by our standards..15"-18". Some might have been a bit larger. 4 of them forced me to put them on the reel...very unusual with fresh water fish here. I had 2 break me off on long runs! Now I was using 6X tippet because they are picky.

The fly of choice today was a #18 gray body with snow shoe rabbit for a wing and a purple head...

I thought that was a shadow on the last fish. Very odd. :mrgreen:

Ah yes, Reading, Pa. ... I owned their Railroad once. :roll:

That's a tan line. It did not use sun screen all the way to its tail.
