This little guy took my dry Sulfur #18 first cast through a long ninety second drift.
Now, that is one long slow drift alright.
It was the first time this year that I had fished my Hardy Fibalite glass 7ft #3/4
Crisp as the day she was built and spot on accuracy this is a classic 1960's glass,
plays fish softly and positively, almost as good as bamboo
The thing is those little trouty teeth can wreck a fly.
First cast, one fly, one fish, fly gnarled beyond recognition
I can see the satisfaction in his eye for the perfect wreckage of a good dry fly
