how is everyone doing? its me again with another big bow, just want to say thanks to the new jersey stocking program and all the workers at pequest fish hatchery!! what a wonderful stocking program with some monster trophy fish they stock!i caught this breeder bow 5/22 on ravine rd., same place i caught last years monster that made your magazine, THANKS AGAIN FOR PRINTING PIC..it was early morning fishing for some browns that pequest stocked the day before, i figured all the big breeders were caught already weeks ago, so i met my father and we started caught a few on a blk whooley bugger and dad caught a few on some worms, i figured to change up so i could see my fly a little better since the water was a little stained. my dad got out of his spot to put on his muck boots i was in waders, so when he left his spot i slid into it and threw on the ugliest biggest fly i had( size 12 hendrickson nymph) and set it deep with my lightning strike high... i didnt make it 4 ft in the first drift and my lightning strike stopped...i thought i was hung up, i was wrong.. i pulled on my 4wt to free it and little did i know i just set the hook in a 7.1lb RAINBOW AT 26 INCHES!!!! out the water the big bow jumped over and over as onlookers were stopping there cars and trucks to see if i would land this beast, thank god i did because that little spot would of been the most fished spot in new jersey if i didnt,,,
