Spent the afternoon on the Shag River, I had planned on going to the Waitaki for salmon, but called my trip short so I didnt drive all that way and disapoint myself with a dirty river.

Caught a nice 3.5lb brown on the fly, lost 3 others, one really nice one of 6lb or more, but my flyline knoted around my finger and it made quick work of my 5lb tippet.

i missed another 3 takes, and wasted a lot of time on the numerous big 8 to 10lb fish that were not interested or too easily spooked.

the one fish i did land put up an amazing fight, the fish was solidly built and put in more fight than any brown trout i have ever caught.
