    I'm pretty certain that the "holdover" you caught is actually a wild fish, in fact a stream bred sea run. Congratulations on that epic accomplishment!!!

    LU - We're yanking a dam out of that stream way up top. Should extend WTS all the way to the uppermost headwaters after next year. Lake is permanently drained since November of last fall.

    Don't diminish that little trouts journey....conquering several dams, the Panama canal, great white sharks....and I believe it encountered one of your flies on a trip up the Delaware...and survived all the way back to it's spring spawning grounds...!!


    was a bit too much fisherman embellishment?
