As I continue my journey in using the dry line more often, I'm finding that it can open more doors than expected
I brought my dry line to the fall salar hunt this year again and while my posse went on using the sunk lines, I tied on a big Carter's bug and decided to dead float a dry over top the pooling salar.
This bug was tied by one of the fishiest salar chasers that I have ever met, Glenn Roberts, a native of PEI and often resident of Cape Breton. Big and ugly is the way to go if you want to see quick results he said.
Quick results was right !! Just too bad it wasn't a salar this time ...
A big male brookie, in full spawning colours and a huge "hump" and kype. The photo really doesn't depict the fish, we estimated it at over 7lbs. About 6lbs better than my personal best
This fish was pooling in with salmon. Prior to hooking, two salmon between 15 and 18lbs jumped within the same pool and a very large salmon porpoised in the middle of the pool ... it was really big !!
Hoping to continue the dry fly trend this fall in my home river. This might be the year of a full take on top
