Today was a good day. Hit the river after work, just as the cold, wet rain started to come in, but that didn't stop the fish from wanting to eat. Nymphed across and up river with some hot flies from @t_vonhertzberg, pulling fish repeatedly with my well used @tenkararodco owyhee. Zigged and zagged with some heavier flies, nabbing more. Switched to some longer distance streamer chucking with my @tenkarausa amago and the only thing that stopped me was the approaching darkness and driving rain, catching another handful on my "one last cast" run back down to the truck. 🤙#tenkara#barbless#catchandrelease#southernsierrafyfishers#troutonthefly#wildkrv#flytying#flyfishing#trout#noreelnoproblem
"Callidrangus Callibaetis" tied by myself, designed by @feather_flinger Big B- Brandon Mena. I like simple flies like these that you can just crank out. Looking forward to putting these to work this summer on some high country stillwater's. Check out @flyfishfood for a great tutorial on this one.
On a remote SI NZ stream I totally misjudged the weight of this fish and swam behind it in a very deep pool. Landed it and it turned out it was only some 6,5lbs - I was wet all over and laughing out very loud!
