Today is the day... Opening day! in Fly Fishing Posted April 11, 2015 · Report reply Thanks BCT, Only caught one rainbow on a brown wooly bugger, the fish measured a hair below 13". Had two other pretty good bites. One before and one after the catch. First one I completely missed the hook set, I was embarrassingly slow, and second one I lost due to a failed blood knot. I caught this fish (pictured below) and had a snag or two just before the broken knot. I considered and decided not to re-do my knots and wish I had because it was a very nice fish. Also I didn't double up on socks or insulation on my legs and I am freezing after about two hours of knee deep wading.
