Fished for about two hours and managed to bring 8 to hand. The fishing was good and hard to leave, but I didn't want to push my luck with my fiancee. Missed about 6 and had one that was over ten inches that wiggled off as I lifted him out of the water.
Only down part is right after I caught the brookie pictured above, this happened......
It's a bummer that it broke, but I've put some good abuse into it. Still have my little 6'6" brookie rod, but I've been liking using a longer rod for the small streams. Oh well, that's life.
Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed.
