We got 'em, Jerry, Ed and I went out in search of chrome kings and were rewarded! This beast came on a 4 inch chartreuse and white fly and kicked ass. She was 39" long and weighed 28.5 pounds. These fish are eating flies less than 18" under the surface! Jerry had only 7 ft of T14, really does not get better than that!
I was able to hook one fish, definitely an adult, somewhere in the low 20# class.
These fish are very fast and very powerful. The grab on my hookup was very slow and subtle, it felt like I was ticking bottom or a log, I knew something was funny. I let it keep ticking, then finally my line just went tight and there it was, off to the races then off in the next breath. Hot Damn!
All in all a good day, 2 jacks on, 2 adults on...
More to come
