Another beautiful morning. Birds everywhere.

Image

I was set on ending my streak of "long line releases", which stood at five in a row. I hook up and it feels like a good fish.

Then it's just dead weight.

It's probably hard to tell, but that gray blur is a gator at the end of my line. It ate my fish. Breakfast is on me, apparently. 0 for 6.

I lose the next two fish I hook.

0 for 8.

:lol Hang in there, pal. Your luck will change. Sitting here at a degree below the freezing mark, high winds, and my home stream still under 12 feet of floodwater, I'd say you're doing fine! I can almost hear the birds and smell the warm air, thanks to your photo essays. thanks

That looks like really good fly fishing water, worth the hassle with gators for sure.
