THIS IS NOT NORMAL. This Brown Trout is also from the Davidson river. This kind of fish shows up once or maybe twice a season. They are always there but everything has to come together to get a shot at a fish like this. On this particular day it had rained a bit the night before and the river had come up a few CFS. The water had a bit of color to it, and the sky was over cast. The angler is Trey. I have known and fished with Trey for a long time and have known him to be exceptional at everything he does including fly fishing. He's good looking, smart, funny, kind, an exceptional bird hunter, an exceptional fly fisherman, and humble. Most of us, including myself, would be happy to have just one of those qualities. Still, with all that in his favor Trey fished the Davidson for many years and on that particular day fished the spot for a good thirty minutes before giving up and working downstream. When he returned with only a few fish to hand for his efforts it was suggested that he make a fly change and fish the same spot again. A few casts later this fish was hooked and landed. Ask anyone who has caught fish like this from the Davidson and they will tell you that its time on the water and dogged determination that leads to a fish like this. No amount of luck, guiding, or even angler talent will bring this fish to hand in short order. Time is the secret ingredient.
