I’m a spinning rod guy always and forever! I was surrounded by fly guys and I noticed my friend Rocco taking a break. I asked if I could borrow his rod, he said yes of course. I rigged up the rod and jumped in the water. 3rd cast in, BAM, FISH ON!!! Fish was zipping up and downstream like a bat out of hell! Finally landed her with the help of a good buddy! Fish measured 26 inches, weight unknown! What a fight on the ultra lite fly rod in the raging fast water! Too easy!!! LOL!!! TIGHT LINEZ ALL!!!🎣🎣🎣🎣🎣✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻😎😎😎😎😎
