Fenwick fiberglass 3weight 7feet "Little Yellow"
Last day on the Henry's Fork. The flow is perfect and gentle. I strung up my beloved Fenwick little yellow and have a cup of CDC PMD #16 flies hand-tied by Brad Smith. A 45 minutes stalking on a monstrous head and finally close in around 20 feet range. My hands were shaking so hard that I spend at least 5 minutes to just get the leader through the fly. The fish is forgiving about my cast... she swallowed the fly while the time seems freezed. I know my life won't be the same after this moment... No, I did not land her... but I know she is healthy and strong! Thank you Bryan — at The Trout Hunter.
