    Coach landed 27 trout. A mixture of brooks and browns
    Nothing huge. ALL trout caught on a girdle bug.
    My buddy Bob Skoronski accompanied us .
    Bob S and I did not fish.

    Going out in the AM tomorrow again in bigger water.

    It would be great to record his conversation with the fish. That would be priceless. :lol:

    One and done

    We were on the water for 11 minutes this morning.

    The Coach was throwing a size 6 girdle bug.

    A very nice trout hammered the fly and took off up stream.

    It was not an extended battle.

    We got it to hand. It was bleeding from the gills.

    This is the first time I have seen a trout inhale a fly and
    bleed from the gills like that. The Coach was really upset.

    He said that he had only done that 2 or 3 times in all the
    years he has fished.

    We released it immediately with out any photos.

    The Coach said "I am done."

    We went to a coffee shop and shot the bull for a while and he
    left back to Madison to the function he is speaking at.

    I don't know if it is a superstition of his or he just felt that bad.
    I didn't ask because he didn't want to talk about it.
