Well, looks like TR's are becoming rare here. I'll go anyway, even though it's nothing earth-shaking.

Went out Wednesday with a fairly new friend and hit a small stream. He's a 32 year old mountain goat obsessed with fishing. I was too busy trying to keep up with him to take many pics, but had a good day. Most fish were released without pics, including my best ones. Man, I was wore out and sore the next day. Bushwhacking, rock climbing, hiking, and trying to fish in-between isn't as easy as it used to be! As JT says, some of the brookies were starting to put on their "party dresses."

You get the picture. All in all, a fine day on a fine stream!

 Very nice. Jesse tells me you lost a real big one. Funny little stream that is. Glad it treated you all good


Phil

Yeah, Big J, I had a real good one on and did a LDR. My fault.  b';

You know Jesse? He lives in my neck of the woods now.

Cannot understand why that boy fishes do damned much.  Good stuff Phil!


Phil

Thanks, all you guys.

I didn't realize so many of you know Jesse. I just met him and fished with him first time at the Spring PFF. Yeah, he's pretty much "in the zone." I believe he fishes every day.

Talk to him pretty regularly.  Wish we could fish more often but something always comes up for one of us.
