    The season is off to a good start.

    A little more color - I fish for these guys so much it is pathetic how few I catch. This was a blind take. I had just switched to a more sparsely tied fly to make sure it was on the bottom. I let it sink and was doing short quick strips to make sure I stayed in touch with the fly. The line went tight and I amazingly did a strip set rather than immediately lift my rod. A good 5 min fight on my 5 weight with 3x.
