Like the saying goes, "You never forget your first"... I took my kids to a local lake while the wife rested at home. I found small window of opportunity to try out my 6WT and just practice casting. About 30 minutes into my casting and mending, I felt a tug but didn't set the hook. Moments later, another tug but didn't set the hook. this went on about 5 times. Finally, after my sixth attempt, i set the hook. what a rush is was to feel the fish thrash about and having it hooked! it was by far, the most beatiful fish I have ever seen. After a short struggle and a pic, i sent this beauty back home. With a great memory and fire in my soul, i look forward to my next trip!
