April 16th, 2011: The Opener

Found a stream with a couple buddies, managed a handful of fish casting the Sprinkle Me Baby into the wind. Cold and crappy out today, think to last year this time… Fished only a couple hours but enjoyed every minute of it, basically alone on the opener, the stream to ourselves we split up and each picked a couple of spots to try. The wind and roll casts. I got lucky and landed this fish, despite the option to harvest, this beauty went back to the creek un-harmed.

  1. Sweet Brown man; I have to tell you there was something about your Hairballs. I thought they were sweet looking so I tied some up using Red Fox tail and it saved my opener. A 12 and 14 inch Brook Trout came to hand because of it. They didn’t want nymphs, just Hairballs. After I lost the only 2 Hairballs I brought, I caught a hog of a White Sucker on a small Wooly Bugger. Sweet weekend and thanks for the Hairball.

  2. Awesome John, thanks for letting me know. Glad your weekend went well, a 14in brookie! Excellent.
