Big Fish

Jon and I fished the Henry’s Fork near St. Anthony this evening. We fished for an hour or so without a strike. After sunset we were back near the car. I turned to Jon and said “I don’t think we’re going to catch any fish.” Jon said “I’m definitely not catching any fish”. I didn’t realize he had already put away his rod. Right after he said that I hear a loud splash. I lifted the rod tip, just in case the sound was a fish taking my fly. After a five minute struggle I landed this beauty, a 20″ Brown Trout.
