It wouldn't be long, maybe a handful of casts until the fly proved its worth. I was the first to hook up with Luc following suit soon afterwards. He'd continue throughout the day getting several more and several misses. Not until later on in the day would I be able to get another fish. Luc seemed to have the magic touch this day; he could do no wrong. He even accidentally caught a fish on his popper while "trolling" to the next spot. This happened when he simple gave up on a spot quit fishing an kept his fly in the water and while we moved around a dock he had a fish explode on it. Not sure why I didn't do as well as him but I was testing several new flies. That could have been it or perhaps it was the fact that he was fishing 15lb while I was fishing 20lb. Although I've never felt these fish were particularly leader shy but who knows. Some days you're on some days you're not.
