Rare catch of the day
Started fishing a small creek by my house. Very shallow for the most part with some deeper holes. It has moving water so I have been fishing a hopper with a double dropper rig. Been crushing the small chiclids, tilapia, bluegil and red ears. Even got some catfish and bigmouth sleepers on the fly. I got to the end of the creek where it is fed from a drain pipe that comes from a larger canal. This is the deepest part of the creek and where I have caught the majority of my fish. To my surprise there is a massive koi in there. I have fished for him a few times without success. Finally today I got the eat on fly. Fun fight on the 5wt and a nice bonus to all the other fish I had caught. Released and still in the same spot so I can catch him again.
