Plenty of spinners on the water tonight. There were some duns too. After a busy day wrapping up at school and later at the shop, I was ready just to catch one fish. More would've been welcome but it wasn't necessary after this 20" Bow found my Sulphur in the dark. The fish put up a valiant fight, jumps and screaming runs with some sudden turns in direction at times. I could have lost this fish several times. It was as if it was saying, you'll only need one dance tonight. Fortunately, my gear a Scott G 8'4" 4wt series rod and a Bauer reel were perfectly matched for the task. And yes thankfully, my double surgeon's knot held. Phew... losing this one would've stung a little. -JH
