I'll let the pictures speak for me instead if relating the entire story, but suffice it to say It was easily the best day of fishing I've ever had. Fresh, salt, warm water or cold.

The best part of the day was that my fishing buddy, Allen, joined the 20/20 club with a 20" brown caught on a size 20 olive midge on 6x tippet. (He's in the green hat, I'm wearing the orange hat)

We caught so many fish we couldn't even begin to keep count. Each of us upped our personal best. I caught a 17" brown and Allen boated the 20"er.
