Nelson Spring Creek Mini Challenge Score...Post Here!

Postby Yellowstone7 » Wed Jun 11, 2014 5:56 am

Hi Everyone:

To kick off the Nelson Spring Creek Challenge I am going to post a score for everyone to shoot at. It was done in Experienced Mode using the regulation 4 wt rod and 7x leader strength. I think the choice of tackle size (4 wt rod and 7x tippet) for this Challenge pretty closely approximates the real tackle used on the Nelson Spring Creek on a daily basis. There are no monster trouts in this outing but even a 24 inch Rainbow or Brown Trout will take a bit of skill, patience and luck to fight out and land. I lost three flies on my first attempt in doing the Challenge by applying too much pressure, too quickly on the fish. No, this will not be one of those "cast out, hook fish and haul in" outings. You will need a little finness to score well in this 10 scene Challenge. :P

You will probably notice that there are two kinds of Brown trout in this outing Challenge. There is a light golden color one and a darker color one. The Brown Trout (Salmo Trutta) originated in Europe and was introduced into the US waters way back in 1883. This great fish quickly established itself in America and are widely distributed all over the continental USA where there are suitable stream habitats.Their coloration sometimes varies with the stream environments. On the Yellowstone River we tend to see brightly colored Brown Trout with a light yellowish tint to their skins. However, in some of the slower and muddier tributaries and side channels the coloration of the Brown Trout tended to be darker, I think this is so the fish can blend in better with their environment. In the Nelson Spring Creek sometimes you see the best of both worlds. I would say from my experience the larger, and more mature Brown Trout tend to be a little darker than their younger juniors. So, if you hooked into a darker Brown Trout during the Challenge, make sure you take a bit time and care when you play and land the fish. :P

As you can see here the Challenge took 27 minutes and 30 seconds to complete. This is a good time for a Challenge as when it takes too long people tend to tire and lose their concentration and interest in the Challenge. If it is too short then not much skill would be involved. During my Challenge I lost one nice fish in one of the scenes when the hook came out. I did not lose any flies. I expect your own time will vary, depending on how many big fish you hooked and played out. I didn't hook into any of the big fish so my time might be a little faster than the average.

Please post all your scores here so we can keep everything in one place. It will be a lot easier for Roger to keep track of everything that is going on, verifying the scores, etc. I thank you in advance for your cooperation on this.

Here are my Challenge Score and the caught codes:

Hi Savi, Barns and Everyone:

Nice job Savi! That is a very good score and the one to beat now. Looks like Uncle Barnsie and everyone will have some catching up to do.

Does anybody know what happened to Badger? Haven't heard from him for a while. Last time he said he had some computer problems. Otherwise he would be right in the middle of things. He is a such a good RWFF fisher!

Bob is away until next Monday. I am sure he will jump right in when he gets back. After all he will be the defending Champion.

Good luck and have fun everyone.

Regards,

Stanely

Hi Stanley and Everyone,
Well I finally made it thru the challenge for the first time. Even after snapping off about 10 fish, I finally made it. It's not a high score but had to work on getting the old finesse back with fishing big fish on such light tackle. Stanley did an excellent job on his remake of this outing. Excellent scenery and some very tricky currents and some excellent fighting and jumping fish. A couple more times thru this on the finesse tactics and that should start bringing my scores close to the top. Thanks for another excellent outing Stanley, especially for another mini-tournament. Well here is my 1st score. Will probably post again sometime on Sunday or Monday. Got to go to hospital tomorrow and see my dad. He should get out Monday if everything goes well. Good luck to everyone. Roger

Hi Roger and Everyone:

Good to see you back and doing what you do so well in the past...tournament fishing! :lol: I know you had some computer update problems the last time we had a tournament and this affected your results. I hope you have everything working now and you will be back to your old competitive self again!

I thought the Nelson Challenge would be a nice "change of pace" for our members as for the past few tournaments we had used big fish and heavy tackle. By limiting the tackle to 4wt rod and 7x leaders this time, even a 24 in Brown Trout would give you a fantastic, long lasting fight. I caught this nice Brown in one of my recent attempts and let me tell you, this fish took me all the way down to my backing and I had a very hard time dislodging it from the top left hand corner of the scene. I finally got it in but I also lost my time bonus for the Challenge. :lol:

Image

I looked at the posted results and it seems the "trophy" has not yet been caught. In some of the scenes there are big Brown Trouts up to 28 inches and this will turn out to be quite a stress for the 7x leader. Where are they? You'll have to look at the scenes and decide the most likely spots for them. I put them in the scenes where they are found in the real Nelson Spring Creek!

Thanks for your kind and appreciative comments on the scenes in this Nelson Spring Creek outing. Seems everybody is so busy in trying to come up with a good score for the Challenge that they have not been looking at the scenery! :lol: What do they say about hearing the birds sing and smelling the flowers when you are outside? LOL

Keep the good stuff coming. I think old Badger needs some serious competition!

Regards,

Stanley

Congrats Badger

Stanley picked a bad time for this mini challenge, between work and watching world cup, not finding much time to get any fishing time. Any spare time i get , wife seems to want to go out somewhere.

Ah well still a week to go, as Stanley says its not all done until the fat lady sings. :lol:

Come on guys scores i reckon going to be very close, lets give Badger a run for his money.

I know i have hooked some larger fish but too anxious to get good time and keep getting broken. The time bonus plus full fly box is the key to winning this.

Good luck to all
