Had the itch yesterday and decided if I was going to fish, it had better be before this shit comes through rather than after. Once my wife got home I took off.

Late as always. Also every warning light possible (it seems) is on in my old truck. Eh, fuck it, I'll fix it later (or not).

I figured these had a few more trips in them. Note the custom twine laces; contact me for a pro-deal order.

Once I finally made it to the creek, I saw a nice little quill hatch coming off.

Since I saw no surface activity, I figured I would nymph my way through the deeper runs. Settled on a #12 bh pheasant-tail (my personal fav, miss me with that hare's ear shit) since I figured the fish would be actively feeding. Since quills emerge as adults beneath the surface, I expected this to out perform stoneflies and streamers today. I was correct.

One of my favorite runs on this creek. I caught a nice one (18-20ish) last time here. Had to settle for the consolation prize this time, but he wasn't a slouch for this creek.

Trout lilys are still a good week or two from blooming. They are in peak bloom below the mountain.

One of my favorites. If you haven't read up on skunk cabbage, I suggest you do so. Such a cool plant.

It has been 15 years since I last purchased waders. They have been pretty good ones, but for the last couple of years, I have stayed fairly "moist". I got plumb wet today. It's been real waders, but the time has come to part ways.

Nobody likes to wring out their socks.

These came today. They should be a nice little replacement.

I just added the Imgur app to my phone.  Speaking of boomers, how do you use this thing? I can't even get to the point where Woolly's instructions kick in.   b';

You want the old man to teach you, Neil?  :wave
