Beetle called the other night and asked if I wanted to go fishing on Wednesday, of course I said sure!

I thought it was going to be an awesome blue winged olive day with the mountains top s blanketed with snow and the temperature in the mid 30s and an overcast sky, conditions looked perfect for a massive hatch. Shortly after we arrived conditions got even better as a little drizzle started up, now it was just a matter of time. A few fish were caught but overall it was pretty slow. There weren't a lot of people fishing but the ones that were seemed to know our favorite spots.

We moved around a bit and did manage to find a sparse BWO hatch, but it wasn't strong enough to elicit a steady rise from the fish. Then the sun popped out around 3:30 and warmed us up a bit, by the end of the day is was a balmy 45.
Caught a few more fish some of which put on a show with blistering runs and aerobatic escape attempts. Overall not a bad day, sure beats one at work.

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!

You need to reevaluate your definition of a crappy day.

Nice work Woolly.

I almost stepped on him.   b';

Beats the shit out of my day.....

Meetings all day, like in a Charlie Brown class room,

Bla, bla ,bla, wha wha wha ........

I would have rather been there.............

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.

The pic with the Brown and submerged rod is outstanding.

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

You better watch out, Buddy.  If you keep this 'career-oriented' stuff up, you are in real danger of losing your "real trout bum" status.
