A couple weeks into the semester and I am already tired of homework. When it is a topic you find little interest in it can push you to the edge. What is over that cliff you may ask? Well I will tell you. A river. Today the homework, namely chemistry, pushed me over that proverbial cliff and I found myself standing in a river. And what luck, I happened to have a fly rod in my hand.
Here is a short video...
This medium sized cutthroat trout took a streamer pattern I created. I call it the "Cutty Candy." The name may already be taken by some other fisherman, but I'll claim it till I hear otherwise.
Todays fishing was not fast and furious. In the short while I was out, this beautiful cutty was the solo catch. I didn't mind. Being outside was refreshing. The wind was hardly noticeable, and the temp was in the upper 30's. I wish I could have been out there longer, but I am grateful for even this quick outing.
Beautiful fish....not long now and I'll be joining you!ReplyDelete
It will be good to have a faithful fishing companion back! Glad I don't have to wait till march.ReplyDelete

Yo Chris...I suck at Facebook and couldn't figure out how to shoot you a message. Hoping to get a dialogue with you on the ID carp scene. Not looking for secrets but I am planning a trip for the spring. Shoot me a message if you are savvier than I or email me at Bartlett at fibersphere.net.ReplyDelete
Hope all is well!
