    Was driving back into town and about to head to the next stream when I saw what looked like a nice spot in the shade. It was a hot weekend so shade was a blessing for both the fish and me. Wandered into the tail end of the pool and saw fairly regular rises so I threw dries but only hooked into a few.

    Switched to nymphs and ended up catching a bunch of fun fighting smaller trout, and hooked into this fish twice but it broke or shook off the hook each time. Finally got a solid hookset with a flashback pheasant tail, saw a big flash of golden brown through the water and knew it was the big one in the pool, then it was off to the races upstream! Took my time with the fight to make sure it didn’t shake off again and finally coaxed it into the landing net. Let out a celebratory hoop and holler, enjoyed the moment and beauty of the fish with a few pictures, got an approximate measurement (15+”) then sent it back to the pool and called it a wrap on a weekend full of fishing and time in the great outdoors.

    Niiiiice fish, Driftless provides! I’ll hopefully get to land some big bass on my BWCA trip this week before getting back to targeting trout in the springfed creeks. Cheers to a long summer of Midwest fly fishing.

    Great fish, the driftless region holds some tanks, I’ve pulled a few 17s and even an 18 out of streams in the region. Also I noticed your Fitbit band doesn’t stay down anymore, mine did the same and I gave up wearing it because it bugged me.

    Awesome!
    How are the temps doing? I was hoping to get into some Driftless streams in the next few weeks but am worried about the temps.

    Beginning fly fisherman, this is how to take a picture of your fish. Great example of keeping them wet, and a really nice brown.
