10-14 floodin kish, one fish

Postby matt_ski » Oct Sat 14, 2017 8:02 pm

Despite pouring rain I had to hit some river to test out my new 8 wt tfo mangrove on the water. Originally I planned for DPR, but after seeing it in the morning, driving by, I changed my destination and ended up on the Kish. River was high, but still wade-able. I tossed, big streamers and divers. Unfortunately, I was not able to get to a lot of good spots and only managed one fish on the big flashy diver. On the positive note it was the biggest fish I got on the fly so far. Hell of a fun and definitely worth the trip.

You skipped a river in there. What no stop and cast at the Fox as you drive over it?

I think I just like the Kish too much :moresarcasm:and all the fox reports suggest bottom bouncing rigs right now.

Well that had to be fun on your fly rod. I suppose if you were to catch just 1, that would be the one. Sounds like you’re really enjoying fly fishing now.
