Meant To Be...
Grabs come in all shapes, sizes, subtleties, and levels of aggression.
Sometimes those grabs just dont stick. You're asking a fish to hit a moving target and no matter how properly your fly is constructed, the arrow doesnt always hit the bullseye
On the other hand, landing a particular fish is just meant to be. Take a peek at this example.
The grab was violent, suggesting that the hook had buried in the proper place in the fishes mouth. When we landed the hatchery hen and took her ashore, I laughed when the hook fell out of a tiny piece of skin on the outside of her jaw.
It was literally the luckiest landed fish of my life.
It was just meant to be.
