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.
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
