2 Foot Long Rainbow

2 Foot Long Rainbow

A few of us hit up the Weber River behind Bryan’s house on Sunday. Right of the get go we were in to fish. It seamed like fish were everywhere. We couldn’t have asked for a better fishing conditions. I was pretty stoked thinking I pulled off another ” Utah Grand Slam” day of fishing. (Utah Grand Slam is when you catch 4 or more species of trout in one day) We were catching 14″-18″ Cutts, Brooks, Bows and Browns with an occasional White Fish. Then I hooked in to this pig. It gave me one heck of a fight. I wasn’t thinking I was going to get into fish this size so I only brought my 2wt with 6x tippet. After the first few runs I was thinking there’s no way I’m going to be able to pull this guy in. It ran me up and down the river. I really regretted not having my net. After working her until there was no more fight in her I was able to scoop her up into my chest and hold on for life. I handed off my rod and removed the fly from its mouth and tried to keep a hold of this beast. She still had some fight left in her and didn’t want to get her photo taken. We all had a good laugh and got some photos then put her back in the water. Within a couple of seconds of being placed back in the water she was gone. We fished for a few more hours, caught some more fish and finished off the day with some beers at the car. One of the best days fishing in my life!
