Foulhook and I decided to go prospecting on a stream that was good to us back in October.  High aspirations in hand and lots of time at the fly tying bench culminated in a lot of missed fish.  Nick was throwing streamers earlier with limited success, I was trying some more natural fly imitations with even more limited success.  I switched to a streamer halfway through the day, but was too little too late.  I think between the two of us we missed or broke off 20 fish, ridiculous.  Nice day to be out though for January.

I enjoyed the outing. Got to test out my new HD cam and underwater housing.

You two suck.

I see you got the waterproof case for that little video fun - nicely done.

Glad you two got out and caught fish.

Thanks for the kind words guys. First video I've ever recorded or edited; planning on making more throughout the year, so they should improve with more practice. Lesson learned: pics & video of fish underwater is hard.
