Lure: Spin Flies
Fish Caught: Trout, Brown - Trout, RainbowI was out on a day where the fishing report was bleak and I wasn't getting a bite or seeing a single fish rise. I crossed paths with a kind stranger who asked, "What are you using?" I showed him my fancy new "Trout Magnet crank bait" that was "guaranteed to reel em' in". He took a single hook Mepp's spin fly out of his stash and said, "Here, keep it. It's the only lure you will ever need." I walked downstream as the stranger left and caught a decent 10" brown trout on my second cast. A few minutes later I caught a fiesty little rainbow. Neither fish was huge, but the stranger saved me from getting skunked on a day where the fish were hiding out. I just ordered half a dozen more in a few patterns. Can't wait to get back out there!
