Great day down the river today, salmon moving, somebody pulled out a 14 pounder and I got a sold pull second cast after moving upstream to another spot.
Good solid fish dug deep, great I thought , at last, first salmon of the season.
Oh, but it all suddenly went a bit dead and came in after the initial set of runs. Ok I thought, that’s, ok, and as I brought the fish to me I saw the huge head with the big salmon fly tight between the scissors, and brought this 4 pound chub over the net.
Great fish, first chub on a fly, and first chub for many years.
