lost a trout at the last minute (again)

a mountain river, 2016.07.27

I'm cursed when it comes to landing trout in western Canada - today yet another one slipped away from me. It had made a surprisingly large leap in the water only seconds after I caught it. I was too busy yelling "fish on!" at my son and it got off the line as it landed once again. As with prior fishing success, I caught this one after having "chummed" the water, this time with some salmon eggs. I had the same eggs on my lure, the combination seemed to work.
