This last Saturday, October 6th was an ELECTRIC DAY on the Battenkill. With a rain of leaves and debris in the water, the only option was deep indicator fishing. A size 12 Kashner Hide A Bead was the pattern. My client had a camera with him so I guess all the stars were lined up....this old jaded guide even left with a new bounce in my step. What a day! This is a true STUD! A 23" Battenkill Brown Trout
