A successful Opening Day

We had an enjoyable day on Sunday. The wind was a bit cold and quite blustery, but we still managed a few fish each. A lot of fish were coming short and turning away, and quite a few more were failing to hook up properly for some unknown reason...It may have been my striking was a little off or rusty, but other fish were well hooked so I don't think this was the reason.
It may have been due to the number of boats out trolling rather than fly-fishing, all that motoring often upsets the fish and makes them edgy.
It is to get very cold again this week, so I don't think I'll be out again for a few days.

Just discovered your blog and must comment on your fish. That is a beautiful Brown. We have Browns in our river[Wind River-Dubois, Wyoming]but nothing of this size. Also get to catch Rainbows, Cutthroats and an occassional Brookie
