Floating an unfamiliar river for some super aggressive pike. I searched around for a while, and then found one of the best pike holes I've fished in a while!
Fly rod: 9' 8wt Orvis Clearwater rod (4 piece) Reel: Waterworks‑Lamson Liquid Fly Reel 3.5 Line: 8wt scientific anglers fly line, 20lb tapered flouro leader with a 20lb RIO wire tippet.
Rod/reel setup: -Quantum Octane 6'6" medium heavy action rod with an Abu Garcia silver max and 30lb braided line, connected to a 27lb 9" steel leader. ***The rod and reel I was using is a cheap setup, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. I only use it at the river in case something happens, I'd rather break that than an expensive rod/reel.
Made a little day trip to hit a beautiful stream that is rumored to hold some GIANT brown trout. Upon arrival, it was painful to see them tucked up under a tree branch...laughing at me as I hurled my sparkly eggs. While the big browns swerved me, I did catch a ton of fish including an unexpected species while fishing this little creek.
Go pick up some new MF apparel! I'd love if you took the time to check out the products and let me know what you think. You guys are the best!

Nice rainbow trout on light tackle using a soft minnow bait. Video shows how to identify where to fish and where not to fish. Fish released quickly unharmed. Using barbless hook. www.BestTroutLures.com
