Only one problem. We all know you were using your special fly for that beast!
Exactly!!! Good one Phil.

Caught a 23" bank sipping brown on the soho during a bwo hatch. Got it on a #20 parachute Adams. Tough cast, tough drift, and probably the the epitome of my life as a fisherman. Had my buddy take 2 pics with my camera to capture the moment, released the fish, and found out he only held the button down halfway both times.

Great fish 'Wolf. Did you catch it on Road Prong?

Silvercreek,
What a great fish off Silver Creek! That fish has a PhD in entomology based on the stuff it sees thrown at it on one year, and you fooled it! Fishing downstream with a dry?What an ecosystem that place is.

Here's a couple of picks that will jog the memory. One for those that don't know you have to sign in everyday. The place is owned/leased/ or run somehow through Nature Conservancy so you sign it and state your business in the area.

Really nice fish wolf. What X tippet and how long was your leader. Must have taken a while to land.

Thanks. That fish was from the Henry's Fork, altough Silver Creek is my favorite stream as you might guess from my user name. I almost always fish downstream on the western streams. From your pic, I'd say your down around where Loving Creek enters Silver Creek. Beautiful shot and it does bring back memories.

That one came on a unique set up, leader length was about 7.5' and the tippet was 02X, which is 24 lb. Surprisingly the fish didn't take too long to land, she jumped so many times it wore her out quick.

Having just seen an Alabama rig for the first time, I can honestly say I would spend more time unwrapping myself from that mess than actually fishing with it.

I dread the day when I would tie that nightmare on.
