Many, many fish day
Took my Nissin 450 two-way ZX (soft) to our local urban catch and release pond today. I landed 29 of these feisty rainbows 10 - 14 inches. This is by far my personal best for quantity in one outing. I used a 2.5 level line about the length of the rod with 5' of 5x tippet and a small foam indicator. The fly was a #16 black midge with red wire rib and a bright orange hot spot at the head. It got pretty chewed up but the trout didn't seem to care. I had a great day with a great rod.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
