Massive Lake Run Browns

Had an epic day on the river today. Sight fished into a male brown that was in the 27 inch range. Sneaking up on this fish I thought it was a sucker or carp.  The fish was just massive. The plan of attack was a high stick from a 5 foot cliff. There were 4 other beautiful hens sitting along side the beast. With the sun being at my back and a few spotty clouds going by the timing was crucial to sneak up and high stick these fish. The cloud intervals were in the 30-60 sec. range. Without their cover I would have spooked the lie in no time. Jumping back and forth between sun and cloud I spent around 2 hours sifting through my fly box. Long story short I hooked the bruisers little sister. Still a beautiful fish that put up a heck of a fight through a never ending log jam maze. The hook set and jump off the cliff was exhilarating.
