early thursday afternoon, i hit up tremont. several bugs on and around water. even saw a few yellow stoneflies. Landed 4 rainbows, 3-9 inches. missed twice as many. saw every fish that struck. as far as size, i really haven't been catching too many clones, mostly in the smaller range (4-7 inch). plan on trying for a brown this rainy weekend.
I think just about every fisherperson i know has some sort of fish hook story. I've had more encounters with hooks than i care to tell. my first was when a friend and myself were fishing in a small pond boat. he reared back with a rapala dangling from a spinning rod, tried heaving it forward and wham! free ear piercing!
