After the grandparents boogered off yesterday at 2PM, I collected my fishing belongings and made tracks down I-40.

After four disastrous trout hunting days on the water this year, I felt chipper about this trip.

The weatherman will no longer be used. The forecast was wrong, all damn wrong.

I looked out the car window to find the stream I wanted to fish, high and muddy b'; So I bailed way upstream on the main feeder and found what I was searching for. Clean waters.

At this altitude, I would have expected to tussle with some brookies, instead, my first fish of the year was an 8" cockroach

The creek was a mere two feet wide and I was a pig in shit.

Petey's flies are the shiznit. I tore these bastards up.

I decided to go lower down as the creek was virtually non existent by the time I reached 2900ft

I spied a brown gorging himself in the tailout of a pool. Nailed him 1st cast...

Decided to head over to the big brother stream and got into some larger specimens

It's gonna take a while for me to come down from cloud 9 after an ambush of epic proportions. Heck, I got video footage too, and will spend the eve working on that.

2012 skunk no more.  nice work Mike.   bd;0


The Dude

Nice work, Mike.  I was fishing a wild stream today and hooked into an 18"+ brown trout.  After about a 2 minute battle, I got it in the net and unhooked the fly.  I tried to lift the fish in one hand and snap a photo with the other hand.  Unfortunately, it was a two-hander and flopped into the water as I was trying to lift it.  Anyway, it moved only 10' away and sat in a shallow riffle and rested.  I thought, "what the hell" and tossed my fly at it, and the focker hammered my fly first try!  Ha ha ha!  The fish were definitely hungry this weekend.

I was born by the river in a little tent,<br />And just like the river I've been running ever since,<br />It's been a long, long time coming,<br />But I know change is gonna come.

Nice Tranny...way to get the stink off!!!

That's one heck of a way to come off of a skunk. Congrats

Look I'm not into fishing superstitions, but you must have slipped that 8" cockroach the tongue before letting him go.  Looks like you had a great outing.
