Breakfast was egg, not sardines. I pulled out a nice 19-incher that didn't react to streamers with my egg!!
After warmed up in the hut, I started to see some rise rings and baetis were on!! Oh boy, I have to share here that this "CDC DUN" that I tied last night was an absolute KILLER!!
Something was sipping just under the water film. It looked super technical to cast and set the hook but I did it with the very first cast!!...............17-inch whitefish on size 22 CDC Dun tied on 6X tippet.......Can you believe it? Should I be happy?
I consoled myself with a nice Yellowstone Cutty. I had one more giant whitie and many more rises/bites that I lost. Wonderful baetis time!!
Koichi and I fished with an angler from Japan who didn't mind throwing
He was rewarded with two nice browns (this is the smaller one...why didn't I take a pic of big one?)
Good looking anyway.
