On my last outing, I was minding my own business. Fishing a local freestone. You know, nymphing with my usual stuff and having good luck finding trout of the holdover and stockie varieties. Just enjoying the great outdoors and flinging some flies.
Then, this happened.
A carp? An overgrown chub? Based on some online queries, I am thinking the latter. I don’t know what this was, but it was about 17″. A fish with a face that only a mother can love.
And, it took a size 20 nymph.
