A note from MacKenna Stang:
“The Arkansas River can be a very technical river to fish – especially on a sunny day like this. You can likely find the fish hanging out on shady banks. This particular fish made me work for it. I saw it and a few other fish start to rise a few inches away from the bank. I changed my rig three times in the span of 10 minutes. I finally decided to put on a double dry: Elk Hair Caddis on the top and a Parachute Adams trailing. My third cast was right where I needed to be and I got the brown to sip on the Caddis. We danced around for a few minutes before I finally got it into the net. A few minutes of pure adrenaline and excitement. It’s the best feeling when a plan comes together on the water!”
