After a number of hookups and break offs Lauren finally landed this beauty of a lady bow tonight. She’s one of my best friends and has been fishing with us during our women’s fly fishing clinics over the summer. I was up river when this hook up first got started. Sprinted across a number of currents to help her wrangle this fatty. Her patience and fortitude lead her to getting this Fish to the net. When we finally got to take a peep at this sweet bow Lauren was shaking with the rush of battling a Roaring Fork rainbow. It was one for the books and proof that heartbreak leads to success. The heartbreak brings us back. Over and over again until we get these short wonderful moments of revery. This is why we fly Fish ladies.
