The Rush

September 30, 2017

Fished the Rush late this morning.

Rush, an appropriate name.

Rushed to work to put out a couple of fires; some kind of vacation day.  Rushed to the stream. Rushed home.  Rushed through dinner before rushing the kids to the football game.  Rushed back to the football stadium to bring them home.

Surprisingly, I was able to slow down and take my time once I got to the Rush.  Always connected, it really is tough to get away. Who said you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

Didn’t start catching fish until I resolved one outstanding work related matter standing knee deep in the middle of the river with trout noses rising everywhere. Tricos.

Tied on a hopper and a dropper when the spinners stopped.  Caught one on the hopper.  Had two others nibble at it.  Amazing how slow they rose to it.  Very delicate takes.  Caught a few more stragglers.  Ended the day with 11 browns and 3 brook trout.

Saw one absolute monster brown.  Twenty plus inches sitting in the shallows amidst a large school of trout no more than fifteen feet away.  Bright sunshine, no cover, right out in the open.  I could see it plain as day.  Wonder if it was looking to feed on one of the  abundant trout milling about as I saw it charge a smaller trout that got too close?
