Dave landed this huge Bow on the morning of Aug. 20 during a Midge Hatch. His fly of choice was a size 22 Black Beauty. His guide, Pat Dorsey with Blue Quill Angler, was there to net the fish. They taped it “accurately” at 34 inches. Pat estimated the weight at 15 lbs.
I have not seen a fish this big, in this river, for 30 years. If they make it through the winter we could be talking about fish nearing 20 lbs and 36 inches at Boxwood Gulch next year…. No need to go to Alaska. Thank you Dave and Pat for being able to land the fish and take a great photo.
