Ok, that was insane. Landed a few dozen trout at the Farmington and just stopped counting.
Best part of the day was going out in the morning with guide Zach St. Amand. I thought I knew how to nymph. I’ve had a lot of success with it. Have not hired a guide in about 10 years. But, with the Farmington so massive, I thought it would be great to have him show me some spots.
He did that, and he also changed my casting, set up, and rig. While demonstrating a tension cast, he hooked and landed a 25″ rainbow. Photo up top.
The guy is a legend. Fish with him.
