|First little creek bow sighting|
This reports kind of backward but I wanted to add that on the way up the mountian I stopped off at a clear water Carp fishery I reported on a week or so ago since it's on the way. Got up on the hill and glassed lots of empty clear water. I was just about to leave and I saw a really nice fish way off in the distance. I rarely see and catch anythinig over 6-7lbs here but this one stood out. Grabed my gear and literally ran to try and intercept this fish. It looked to be about 10-11lbs. This place is wide open and clear water so I set up on a spot with a good back drop and waited her out. It felt like an hour but probobly only about 5 miinutes into it she headed right for me. I cast on her once and was way infront so I took a second shot and over cast her about 5 feet . I couldn't believe she didn't blow out so I stripped like mad and dropped it right on her nose and by god she ate! She bolted off and stopped just as my backing left the guides and came back at me just as fast before settling down for a little close contact fight. THAT was fun! Packed it in and headed to the trout after that..
|She is beat and just about ready..|
