The Monkey Wrench

Early in the morning, while the other guys were fast asleep, I snuck out of the tipi.

In the arctic mountain lake just outside our tipi, there was a huge mayfly hatch going, and a large brown trout was having an early morning feast. It took my fly on the very first cast, and I started shouting like a madman, trying to wake the other guys so we could get it on film. Our producer, Petzi, grabbed my camcorder and shot this little piece, toothbrush in mouth. I guess you can tell that he had just woken up from the way he handles the camera…

The trout
turned out to be the one of the longest dry fly trout I´ve ever caught, but it certainly wasn´t one of the heaviest…

A real Monkey Wrench Trout!
