received m mid 1400186278563 c2c6ed0fe448fb1376 1 It was middle of May and historically, the big ones arrive in the river at this time. My bells started to ring and my biological alarm clock was fired up like crazy. It's time to go fishing for the trophy!

I started to call to my friends to arrange a fishing session. And there we went. The first day was a total bust, not one mark in the fishfinder even less in the rods! The second day was more promising. Fish started to appear in the finder, and soon we started to feel the fish hitting the lures. I was the first to get a real bite, and my reel was singing like crazy zzzzzzzzzzzzzz! But, after a big run of the fish opened his mouth and off he went. 1 to 0 for the fish. My friend was also fighting one and was luckier than me and won his battle.

One more strike for me and once again I heard the beautiful song of the reel in my hands, and once again the fish got away. I was starting to get frustrated. The marks in the fishfinder and also my faith of landing the big one that day were starting to disappear. But, after a good paddle I found the fish once again, it was the end of the tide, and my faith was ending with it.

Finally I felt some thing trying the lure, but he seemed to have given up.

And BANG!  The rod pointed down to the water again but the reel didn't sing... And I felt the line go loose. 3 to 0, I thought the fish had won for the day. But no, I was happily wrong and when I started to reel the line, the fish ran like crazy and the philharmonic band of my reel was in full sound.

After a few minutes fighting my trophy gave up and surrendered to me.

It marks in the scale 28kg. Not the biggest one of the season, but the biggest one for me. Now we just have to wait for the next year to try and break my record.

Thanks to you all and I hope you've liked my story.
