Taylor River Beauties



I took a little trip to the Taylor River with my friend Nick, his Uncle and his Dad and we had one exciting Sunday. The day started out with Nick getting broke off by a monster rainbow that torpedoed out of the water dolphin style. After that we nymphed the day away catching some nice rainbows and browns with the beautiful coloration typical of the Taylor River. As afternoon began to approach things had slowed down and the fish were getting tougher until...




Nick caught this monster rainbow. He stretched his tippet to the max and did an amazing job of landing this beast. Once he got it in I took the undersized net and trapped the fish's head for a few quick photos and an easy release. After that fish we were all satisfied for the day but we continued fishing. Nick spotted a rainbow for me from the bridge and I made a nice slack line drift over the rainbows head. After a few casts the indicator ticked, I set the hook and the fish torpedoed out of the water. Luckily I had some slack in the line and it moved toward me or it would have broke me off. After the ensuing battle and some help with a guy who had a long handled net the fatty was landed. After netting the fish we found Nick's fly stuck in it's mouth. This was the same fish that broke him off in the morning. A few more pictures and the beautiful rainbow was safely released. Now we were really happy. Right before we called it a day, Nick's Dad caught and fat brown and we went home on a great high. The Taylor can be an exciting river and with a little effort you may find great rewards.
