Beauties! But are you sure it's open? And are you sure that's not a sturgeon?

Patterns?

Maybe the joys of bad hook geometry? Barbless flies don’t cause me no problems that I can tell.

You’re probably right. I also will blam at least 2 of the fish lost (if not more) on my stupidity 😂

Heck, sometimes it is just how the cookie crumbles. Maybe the fish weren’t committing to the bug. Hard saying.

If it’s not a secret, what flies did you use?

I was using mostly a copper John but also got some bites on a hares ear

They were both jig nymphs of course.

Standard copper? I used a lot of red and black too. Chartreuse and blue sometimes. I always loved John Barr’s bugs. He’s one of my favorite designers. Barr Emergers and Graphic Caddis always had several rows in my boxes, and I mostly fished my own patterns. They are just too good not to fish.

I agree with you here, they were green copper johns.

19" rainbow out of Sutton Lake. Largest trout I've pulled out of Sutton.

They closed our launch ramp early last summer because the bottom fell off, due to people power loading their boats. I expect to pull out a few more of these larger hold-overs since pressure was so light on the trout last year.

Best ultralight setup I’ve ever used: Daiwa Kage ultralight 5’6”, and the new Daiwa Luvias Airity.
