Fishing was crazy good – catching? not so much

15" Cutt. Took a size 14 red San Juan Worm 12" behind a girdle bug.

15″ Cutt. took a size 14 red San Juan Worm 12″ behind a girdle bug.

First time fishing this trip.

Rock Creek flows are up a bit, tobacco colored with about 2 ft visibility with a water temp of 39 degrees. Started fishing at 4:00 PM, skies overcast, very light drizzle and by 5:00 PM I had caught and LLR’d 5 nice fish, one of which I was a large, thick Brownie. ¬†My sixth fish was a fiesty 15″ cuttie (pic to left).

I might go back to sharpening my hooks, a practice I gave up a few years ago. However, I think a razor sharp hook might be just the ticket because it seems I lose more fish than I used to.

LLR = Long Line Release a skill practiced by only the most adept of fishermen.
