LOST: 18 inch Brown Trout on the East Branch of the Croton Reservoir. Thick slab of a back. Golden hue with large dark spots. Enjoys eating flashy black and green nymphs and dancing around for five minutes on 6x tippet. Goes by the name of "Heartbreaker". If found please return this fish back to the hole that she came out of. I think she's still got my ego as well.
Oof. That one hurt.
Did manage a couple of small Browns and a small Bow and had two of the best fishing partners on the banks beside me. It was a Sunday to remember early in the season. Hope you all had a great weekend out there.
