I was on the Poudre this evening and hooked into a couple squirrely rainbows; the kind that you don't even know you have on until they come flying out of the water trying to throw the hook. (fishing nymphs as always)

so I'm in this riffly area with some big rocks and cast upstream and I couldn't really see my indicator because of the funky twilight but suddenly this crazy rainbow comes flying out of the water and lands on a rock...I haul in the slack and realize that it's on my line...so i almost have the line tight when the thing flips onto another rock then back in the river then jumps again on another rock then goes flying downstream past my feet where I hauled it in.

I thought it was pretty hilarious...trout pinball I called it. The fish ended up being 10" and seemed just fine when I released it.
