Vis about 2′ in the lower river mid-morning today (Sunday). Fished a run and hooked a stout 34″ wild buck. This buck took to the air 5 times (big air) before I could get the fly out of his mouth. The fly was Tom’s purple peril, tied on a 2/0 hook…not the first time it’s worked for me!! Very strong fish. Took the fly near the far bank and nearly ripped the rod out of my hands…one of those takes you don’t forget quickly!! It’s November and there are fish in the river. This fish was photo’d but not by me. I’ll put up a pic or two once I get them. Come on down if you can, there are strong fish just waiting to smash your fly.
