    Thanks everyone for the input...totally just looked forward to standing in the river and cooling off, swing my 2 hander around a bit and try out a clear intermediate line on a new single handed 7 wt I just bought....I went with a buddy who fishes it pretty regularly....we went in past the shack and took a left parked and walked upriver a bit....worked our way down toward the bridge hooking small...really small sea run cutts when I kinda rolled that new single 7 into a little soft water off of some really heavy stuff, I was half way thru a roll mend when he cruised up and blasted it about 2" under the surface. It was a short roll cast initially and I saw the whole thing....I saw all the spots and hollered to my buddy danny that I had a big cutthroat....When It had finished it's temper tantrum (ie running up river and jumping several times ) and I brought it to hand danny said...that's either a resident rainbow or a small summer run....either way it sure capped off a nice evening

    I used to catch fish like this out of the Beckler River. They taste good also coming out of a nice cool mountain stream. Got some 16 to 18 inches.
