ran into a wreck just of of town of the steep hill, several cars were off the road and the police advised to "go back to town and have breakfast, this will take a while.

After getting a cup of coffee I headed back, they had set up a detour on the old road to bypass the wreck.

There were many rescue vehicles and a helicopter on the road.

Finally got to the river an hour late, sure was pretty with the dusting of snow...

I worked on downstream in the freezing rain. Ice built up heavily in the guides and eventually covered the entire rod.

The water was freezing on the line as i stripped it in..

Caught a decent bow and a handful of smalish browns before Karl and Mike finally reached the river. There was a huge pile up on I-26 due to the same storm icing the road.

Worked the water and caught some more bows on a #22 zebra. On one run they were all over it. Hooked eight in 45 minutes but only landed two. Got some good aerobatics from the others.

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

Did a bird get to that second to last bow?  Looks like a rake above the gill cover.

Gorgeous pics.

 We got on the water at8:45 Weather was a bit better yesterday than what you had WB.

A few small Browns at our first stop. The hole that produced so well a few weeks back. We moved up river to catch the falling water and it payed off. I landed 1 Rainbow all day.

The Midge #20-#22 was the fly for the day

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Rick, you looked a tad chilly holding that fish.  I noticed the water behind you was shallow, so you obviously didn't need me to lead the way! :)
