Evening on Rock Creek -
It's early evening on Rock Creek in western Montana. The river is blown out from the snow melt, but here on a side channel a few trout are rising. An ovipositing caddisfly skates down the channel, and a big rainbow completely clears the water as it takes the bug. I rummage through my fly boxes for a Davy's skating caddis, tie it on, and grease up my line. I try a couple of practice skates, then cast above the trout and strip like crazy. On my third cast the water explodes, and I set the hook. It's no problem getting a big fish like this onto the reel. But playing such a fish in a channel you could practically jump across is another matter--the previous weeks' flood has deposited willows, alders, and cottonwood branches all along the channel. The rainbow dives, wraps the leader, throws the hook and is gone. Somehow I feel more exhilaration than disappointment.
