Hopper time is a great time of year. The big browns love to eat hoppers and it gets really exciting on the days when they are eating it on the twitch. Just the smallest movements of your fly can be the difference in getting a response from a fish and not. This big brown that Bob is holding is a prime time example of a fish that was waiting for the twitch.
Catching monster browns on dry flies is my biggest passion in fly fishing. Teaching people the ins and outs on how to catch these monsters is what makes my job as an outfitter so enjoyable.
Spotting fish is key when trying to catch monster fish. We spotted this monster fish long before we created the proper angle to attack the fishes position. First float through the fish inhaled our size 16 cripple.
