My brother in law and I were back in NW Arkansas for the holidays and made a trip over to the tailwater for a couple days. We showed up about 8:30 on the 27th to heavy generation, but lucky they shut her down about 9 and we were in business. I connected with a couple 12-13″ rainbows below the dam. Tried again the morning of the 28th and found none so we went to Parker and had a ball. We each had some 10-13″ rainbows then I ended the day on a high note and connected with this hook jaw on a long, deep drift. I’ve been using my backup rod, a 6wt TFO and I’m glad I had it. I would have had a real fight getting this guy to the top on anything lighter.
