Hit a lake where the DOW murdered large cuts to 5 lbs to do a GB re-introduction. Well these are supposedly pure GB's I missed 2 on 1st 2 casts then got a couple. Missed a couple more ( hadn't caught a trout on the flail stick since last August). Anyway got a few on metal and missed a few in 1 hr of fishing the lightning was coming and I thought it prudent to head down. These cuts aren't quite as large as they were like 10 years ago but maybe they'll keep growing. Damn it's nice and cool up high. Saw a Ptarmigan and 5 little babies. got a pic with 1 of the little tarms. Walked out in the rain and lightning, it's great to be alive.
