Heart wrenching. At the time we knew it was an awesome fish, but this footage really brings it into focus.
I think it was a foul hooked carp, to be realistic. If those were spawning carp ready to ascend a spring fed creek, I never saw a fish, and if they like mine don't eat while moving fast to spawn. I could be wrong, was there a scale on the fly? Whatever it was a mover for sure.Gregg
It was definitely a trout - we were sight fishing for them, no scale on the hook.
Cool,that was a large guy with shoulders. After I wrote that I thought it a little, or lot, early for carp spawning, is at least here. You guys mentioned carp so I thought there must be some in there. The Bruneau here has an early spawn as it is a thermal river, otherwise, early June is it.Nice lost trout then! Gregg
Ha, I was in so much shock after that kind of run that I didn't know what to think when it happened! We had been watching about five of them swim around back and forth below the creeks mouth for a bit. I'll be back for that behemoth another day. Thanks for the comments Gregg.
