So I spent about 3.5-4 hours out at roaring river in the catch and release section. I saw a ton of monster bows and threw everything I had that was natural at them to no avail. I finally switched over to a squirmy worm after my wife lost a stud on a San Juan worm. As it turns out that was the only fly I needed and I began hooking into a few of the studs (I broke quite a few off on the rocks and brush) but managed to get a couple in. I finally hooked into an absolute stud that I had been sight fishing for for over an hour. Needless to say I regretted tying a simple knot instead of a stronger one after the 23"+ fish popped my 6x like it was nothing. Overall I really enjoyed it and I'm ready to go back at some point!
