Wrapping up one great weekend! The 3rd annual WNC Fly Fishing Expo was a success, with a host of anglers, dealers, shops, demonstrators, and anglers in attendance. Great to see everyone there! Already looking forward to next year.
This morning I met my buddy Kevin on the Davidson, where we both were determined on putting a fish over 20" in the net. Kevin and I have been fishing the backcountry brookie streams all summer long, so it was definitely a change of pace hearing the reel zing and watching the rod bend.
It's been a while since I've landed a fish over 10", given my incurable brook trout addiction. Of course the first fish of the day happened to be a stocker brookie. I guess I'm cursed. We both netted a handful of wild rainbows/browns in addition to plenty of those pesky northern strain brookies that have escaped from the adjacent hatchery.
In the end, no fish over 20". I lost count of how many times we both either missed a strike or broke off on a huge fish. In fact, the most common phrase used today was "I had him" and "man that was a nice fish". All in all though, we agreed it was a good day. With that being said, we were not the only anglers that didn't meet the goal of the day. The kid, fly rod in hand, stomping back to the car with his arms crossed, was introduced to the technicality of the Big D. We all love the Davidson, but man alive it can make you lose your mind if you don't bring your A game. The challenge brings me back though.
The Squirmy Wormy strikes again. A wild brown from the upper D.
Kevin with a nice bow.
