There'd be days like this:
Let me make a confession right from the start: I was out-fished by a 6-year-old girl who was using a Disney "Little Princess" rod and reel.
It's called split-shot.
The Fiesta de la Trucha, however, proved to be my downfall. After their release, the trout went deep and hugged the bottom. My light flies couldn't get near them in the river current.
It went down hill from there.
For the record, I landed a nice, 8-inch rainbow. But please, do me a favor: Don't tell the guys at my fly fishing club that I caught my only fish of the day using red salmon eggs called "Balls O' Fire."
