"My mind played the episode over and over. What could it have been? I imagined that it was a huge brown trout, hook-jawed and heavily spotted, like those that I saw enshrined on the walls of Dan Bailey's fly shop. In reality, I had probably hooked the godzilla of suckers, and there was no way I was going to win that battle. Of course, I didn't let that stop me from telling of the encounter, and hoping that as I did, other anglers would also have visions of 6-pound brown trout, and not bugle-mouthed bottom-dwellers."
