A Flyfisherman's Journey through Southern Appalachia
Rainy day today and the water was up about three feet. Just four 10-12 inch rainbows in the morning. After lunch the rain picked up, as I moved to a large pool I decided to try an eggiwaun. Great choice as I landed a 21 inch rainbow. Put up a great fight on my 4wt rod and BBS2 Orvis reel. Took about five minuets to land her as she was very wise and tried every trick in the book to include mad dashes from the net. Its hard to get a pick in the rain with such a large fish, here is the best I could do as she jumped right out of my hands after one picture.
