Suntech Field Master returns to the Peñasco

Rio Peñasco Brown

Rio Peñasco Brown

Here's a pic of a typical 8-inch brown from my return trip to the Rio Peñasco with the Suntech Field Master. The 11-incher I caught and released on my first trip is still the largest I've caught with the rod. The Utah Killer Bug is still working its magic, and I also had success with a hare's ear nymph. I caught three browns today when I give the flies a little action - it seemed to be more effective than a dead drift.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

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.
