Death and the flybox

I broke my Aquafly flybox yesterday!

While fishing the coast for a few hour yesterday, I caught a nice sea trout. My intention was to release it, but things developed a little differently.

While fighting it, I wanted a picture of the fish in the water before I would slip out the hook and let it go. Unfortunately the fish was so deeply hooked that it bled from the gills, which is a bad sign. So I decided to take the fish anyway.

While handling it on the beach and snapping pics, I managed to drop the my beloved Aquafly flybox on the ground and in the water several times. I even managed to let my camera fall into the sand...No harm done, but still.

When finally the session was drawing to an end I wanted to rinse off sand from the box and shake off water. While shaking the box vividly, it slipped my fingers and hit a rock in shallow water.

The result was a shattered lid, bits of green plastic and loose flies all over the place!

That was the end of that box. Bad luck all around for both me and the fish.
