After a quick phone call to my brother, Kris, I walked to the special spot we never got to fish together while he lived in Boise. The long walk was worth it, as almost immediately my Euro nymphing was paying off. I set the hook on a nice fish that startled me as it rocketed out of the water. It's big! This slab of a fish was jumping and jumping, and with every loud splash I thought it might come unbuttoned. The leverage of the Shadow 2 payed off, as I brought in one of the most colorful rainbow trout I have ever seen in the Boise River.
Both the rainbow warrior and a green caddis pupa killed it today on the Boise River. Czech/Polish/Euro nymphing is a cool and effective technique to use, but I must admit, I still have a lot to learn.
