New Moon in May

Smaller flies, calm conditions, clean water, stealthy approach...

(Un)lucky 13th

The water was much cleaner today, and after tying a few herring patterns I was out, fishing the flooding tide. Got into several small guys, and after changing the spot, hooked into a monster fish. In spite of a stout drag and 15lb tippet, the fish went quite a bit into backing and I wasn't able to turn him. I could see a huge surface boil in a distance, and my tippet parted right in the middle. I love this time of the year. You never know what will come next!
