I went to the Spring River in Arkansas to flyfish for trout with local guide and friend Mark Crawford. I had heard reports of people cathing some nice fish. we were looking for fish to cast too when we saw this fish. I didnt know how big he was and cast at him a couple times. I was using a 5/6 wt TFO flyrod with 6 pound flourocarbon for a leader. The fish took a size 6 mayfly emerger. I fought the fish for 10 min before landing and releasing him.
