The long, unproductive day in the sun was quickly coming to an end. We were on a boat floating 9 miles of a wild and scenic river in North Central Pennsylvania, when out of nowhere this wild brown trout came out from the depths to inhale my grasshopper fly. I uttered the famous words, “oh boy, it’s a big one” and the fight was on. Luckily we landed it and celebrated well.
