I'm bored of the little ones now. Also need 10+pound fish to get to next level. Whenever i get one i can never seem to get in in. The tippet breaks or it swims towards me and I lose it. When I lose the first big one, I have to restart the game, otherwise i just keep seeing small fish. Do the big fish appear again? And how do i reel them in once I get them hooked?

The big fish will appear again up to a point. Too much spalshing about
will eventually spook all of the fish.

The big ones are tricky to catch.
Try moving along to bank to help manage slack line and in the early
stages of the fight just let them run to wear them out. If you search this
forum, there should be more hints.

There are more than one big fish. I have seen 2 10 Lb+ fish feeding together, but as in real fishing they often just don't show. However, fishing a big heavy nymph through the white water can give you a big surprise. They are difficult to land, though. It took 3 1/2 months and dozens of lost fish before I succeeded - on a 4 lb leader. Just keep trying and remember, it's supposed to be fun.
