The Reel Deal

10/19/2011, 7:45 AM, Licking, Missouri

Montauk Springs, fishing alone/with CPH, I caught a 16″ rainbow trout on a 6x tippet, double jig with a foam terrestrial (I made myself!) and a bedspread cream fly.

I watched as the rainbow passed by the small fly disdainfully and then rose for the foam hopper, mouth open, just that frozen half inch between catch and release, between me and the fish, between CPH and I.
