Very stoked I even landed a fish under harsh conditions. #8 Ugly set properly!!Second fish of the day...17" Wild brown with huge scar on head...possible victim of ice out or attack from a predatory critter!!!Need I say more...yes I will...#8 Ugly finds the mark...is this pattern in your fly box???Third fish of the day!!!...14" Wild brown.ready for release!!!Ice pack melt off...Icicles with tiny feet reaching for the water!!!!
