Author Topic: Chum landed on 4 weight fly rod


Used micro egg pattern flies, 5 pound tippet for trout. tiny hook right in the mouth. landed two chum without problem.

But foul hooked once, the tippet broke right away.


Another one.

Both were released into the small river that I could not say the name.

If you are going to release the fish you shouldn't drag them up on the rocks for a pic. Keep them in the water and snap a quick pic before releasing.

Nicely done, that must have been a challenging and fun couple of fish to catch.

Makes a huge difference when a fish is fair hooked compared to foul.

It's tough taking pictures by yourself, but as suggested it helps to keep the fish in the water to minimize damage. I find the best way is to tail the fish in about six inches of water, with the hook still in, snap a pick with the other hand and bobs your uncle, like above (damn, why can I not move the picture below the text?)

Thanks, I will keep fish in water next time.

fish looks spawned out no?most likely flossed?

Trootn, when you have no idea what you are talking about keep out of it. None of the fish pictured above are spawned out and there is nothing to suggest any were flossed.
oh, and well done Tinyfly. What an exciting day it must have been
