Well, as promised I did get the pictures from our friend and good customer Bob Flanagan. These pics are from Sept 30th to Oct 3rd on the Douglaston. Bob says they landed 30 to 40 fish a day with some in the 30# range and a few in the 40# class most of which were natural fish. "All we had to do was drift through them and hold on". judging by the bend in the rod I would say you are correct. Great job on the river and thank you for allowing us to share the pictures.
Keep up to date on all things flyfishing.
