Trout Season Opening

January 1, 2020


I raised the bar high today.

This is without a doubt the largest brownie that I have caught on the rivers in my area. At the same time, it is my record fish and is all the more happy that it was caught on my local stream.

I rarely start the season so early, but due to the propitius weather, I decided to go for three hours fishing on the nearby stream.

In my wildest dreams, I would not have dreamed of opening such a season.

The fish took a brown-olive leech on a jig hook, led by short jumps in a not too deep slot behind a fallen tree. In these conditions my new rod T&T Contact 1083, which has undergone a real baptism of battle, worked perfectly.

The stream where the fish took a fly, is so narrow that an agile person could jump over it. That is why my surprise was even greater when I saw what monster I had to face today.

Basically, I do not measure the fish I caught, but this time I departed from the rule.

The measure showed 68 cm !!!

This dotted buddy gave me an unexpected bath today, but I wish that this season I could take such exciting baths more often.

Tight lines!
