Man, what a great day it was to be outside on Sunday.  Weather in the mountains was about perfect for this time of the year.  Darrell Dotson and I headed out to a stream I had not fished before, which is always exciting.  All I knew that it was small and pretty rugged to get around.  I was also curious to see if we got into any brookies the further we moved up.  No brookies, but there were feisty rainbows in about every pool.  It wasn't the most rugged stream I had ever fished, but it was up there.  Lots of small-med sized waterfalls to climb and the rhodos made it impossible fish a few holes.   Fished a dry dropper most of the day and caught about 50-50 on top/bottom. Nothing like dry fly fishing in November!

Finished out the day harassing some DH fish with streamers the last hour before sundown.  Its funny how skittish those stockers are after enduring a day of constant flogging from anglers.

Not a bad way to spend a Sunday.

Notice the stealth approach to this pool by Darrell...

Nice chit.

It was a good day to be out, very atypical.  I was wearing short sleeves by lunchtime.

Glad you had a good trip.  Very rarely am I able to catch them on drys in November in wild streams.  Good job!

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!

Great going Jeff, dries and bluelines in November, hopefully a sign that Old Man Winter aint that cold -0-

I wouldn't wet wade in the summer on the Soho!  Mike, I'm hoping for the same thing this winter and Steelrain you are lucky, although I might be ruined if I lived closer!

Yup, going fishing
