    Finally, a Humber river Rainbow!

    After years of effing around trying to catch trout in the Humber, the big river finally smiled on me this past Friday.

    This beauty came in on a black and white wooly bugger on an indy-rig. It gave me a several jumps and long runs - all pretty exciting for the first trout on my fly rod!

    Being accustomed to catching SH#T all at the Humber I was so caught off guard that when it came to video time I was too busy clowning around to get good shot of the beast. Here's a few screen captures.

    Great catch! Whenever I am there (honestly just for suckers lol) I would only hear of one rainbow being landed that day, so it's definitely not an easy place to fish.

    Thanks dudes! I'm sure I'll have many more fishless days on the Humber before I catch another.
