Truckee River

We got a little lucky yesterday and landed this big brown trout. Actually, it was in a slot that I'd hooked big fish before. Adam who is a great angler stuck this baby and off it went. We landed it about 200 yards downstream through fast water. When I say we, I mean it took both of us, angler and guide, working together to put that beast in the net. An epic battle of sorts. It ate a sz#14 Canadian Tuxedo nymph on 3x. Knots were good, tippet was strong, and Adam took his ass downstream with the fish. When it was over we cracked a brew. This fish was caught and released on public water in the Truckee River.
