A serious hike

A remote stretch of river was exactly what we needed to chase browns with some big ol streamers. Many cutts fell prey along the way, which is always a bonus. Matt ties these huge articulated streamers, at first it was hard to get use to throwing something that large. I mean these things are 6 inches long. But they only bring the big boys. I guess we were surprised at the size of some smaller cutts that hit it, but browns that hit it are all big 18+. We lost some serious pigs, one fish hit my streamer so hard it bent the hook. We tie these things with the best hooks possible, so the fact that a fish bent it, well ,wow. We are determined to take a massive pig this summer, stay tuned its going to happen, 10 pound wild brown ????
