Met up with FT and his brother to get the year started right by spending the day in a stream 0--0  We rarely got to fish together this past year and decided that 2009 would be much different.  Only wish the weather would have cooperated.  The warming trend of earlier in the week yielded to the high winds yesterday and brought in the coldest temps of the year.

Despite the cold and the delayed opening of the store to get our passes we were glad to just get out.

The stream had good flow but my fishing instincts were much delayed.  When we decided to break for a late lunch FT was the only one to have brought one to hand and I had lost the four that I had on briefly.  o-o  On the first stretch after lunch FT showed us what we were after.

I finally got the skunk off and landed my first fish of 2009 at 4:40 PM  In the next 20 minutes I landed two more making it 3 for 2009.

A great start to the new year.  The boo worked well and the fly of the day for me was an olive soft hackle bugger.

Let's hope 2009 brings me many more fishing days with friends than 2008 did.

It sure was a good way to bring in 2009.  Didn't seem quite as cold once we got on the stream as it did waiting for the store to open.

Looks like fun guys. Last I was there it was in the teens and if I hadn't decided to throw a couple streamers in the last hour, I would have been skunked. They seem to want that protein in the winter. Can't wait for that glorious hopper fishing this summer.  ;hb
