I was shocked:shock: he was still throwing a nymph since a springer broke 1 about an hour before this. Yes they do!!!!!:D Although,come to find out, it was one of mine that I tie on a #6 Gami. His are on like a 8 or smaller and NOT Gami. It was kind of a big hook for that lil trout. Had the springer hit 1 of my nymphs.....:( o well, I got this babe!

And a tip! When you get reely high on a system, the big fish, big bait theory goes FA-LYING out the winder;) Have a great week guys and gals!

Nice fish, I guess they do get a small run of springer there. Gotta try that river here soon.

The 2nd picture looks like the fish was foul hooked. Nymph stuck in, just under the eye. I am not to sure I would have posted a picture of a fish that might even resemble a foul hooked fish. But to each their own.

Look closer man. The eye of the hook is lined up with the tip of his nose, the white of the nymph is going right into the corner of the jaw and the point is coming back out under the eye. It`s pretty obvious that one hackle hair is coming from the eye to the point of the hook. Also obvious is the mono POINTING right at the eye of the hook. I can even see the knot. A classic hook up! There is something else that is obvious......jealousy....but to each their own.

He loves `em. Even fell and ripped `em. They patched for free, any worse they would have gave him a new pair. He got his in Welches, I`m sure they are around.
