Wow, you must be a Zen Buddhist to take a run like that in your stride. I'd cry ?I caught a lovely sea trout early on then I couldn't hook up for love nor money. I had so many fish on and off in 1-2 seconds and a few more for longer - not counting plucks, or tweaks or splashes at the fly without contact which I normally get lots of fishing surface lures.
I stopped counting at 25 fish lost in a row, including two salmon, one at the net which was my own dumbass fault. I am sure it was over 30 lost in a row before I landed my next sea trout a few weeks ago.
Sounds frustrating, which it was, but I've really enjoyed this season. Last season, I caught a few more and can't remember losing any but I prefer this season tbh.
I've enjoyed this season more too. Less water = more nights. Numbers = a bit down, so what?
