My 5 wt. Redington fly rod  got quite the workout last week after Beaver Lake received several truckloads of jumbo trout. Except when fishing in British Columbia lakes, my  rod seldom gets severely tested and bent over by a rainbow trout. But these fat Beaver Lake trout, averaging 3 pounds each, can easily snap many trout-sized tippets. A patient fight is key to getting them into the net. Fly pattern or color didn’t seem to matter much; as long as the fly had good motion, it was readily eaten.

Needless to say, these jumbo rainbows are super moist and tasty too!
