Even though my arm hurt badly, the need to catch a good sized trout on the San Juan kept me fishing. These trout are fun, yet very frustrating to fish for. I was able to land many small fish even though the large ones still avoided my net.

The rod I was using is a TFO Lefty Kreh Professional Series II which is a bit more moderate action then the last rod I was using. However it didnt seem to help much with bringing the larger sized trout in on these tiny nymphs. I tried very hard not to put much pressure on the fish when fighting, however I still lost them.

The reel I was using is a Sage 2250, and the line was Rio Mainstream WF5F, a simple $40 fly line. You don't need much more then the mainstream line on this river due to not having to cast very far to often.

I hooked 4 good sized trout, and one was well over 20". In fact, the one I lost due to it wrapping around "big rock" was easily 22-24". I just could not put enough pressure on him to steer him clear of the rock.

Are you selling product as an endorsement for sponsorship for TFO/Sage/and Rio?? It surely sounds like a sales pitch.

How does this sound like a sales pitch? I am not selling anything at all. Just trying to do a video on my trip to the san juan. HAHA Just cause I made a quality video doesn't mean I'm selling anything. Thanks for the compliment though! :)
