  5. Funny story… i went to go to a particular spot, a guy was fly fishing. So i pull away to give him the curtesy to leave him be and go down to the next spot. As ...more im getting my waders on, that same guy pulls into the lot. I say β€œoh i was gonna fish that other spot you were in but came down here to let you be”… thinking he’d show me the same curtesy…. NOPE! He goes β€˜yeah i didnt catch anything there, you can go fish it now’ and he walks down to the river in front of me. Soooo i get back in my truck, go back to his original spot, and absolutely slaughter rainbows 🀣🀣🀣 here’s just a few. I had at least a dozen, including some small wilds and the nice one in my other picture!

    Many rainbows with a Karma
