Yesterday I joined a few local fellows in a fly fishing endeavor. I had never met them in person before, but as probably is not all that uncommon- I met them in a fly fishing forum.

We decided to try out new water, and located some promising looking flows and ponds on a detailed map. It was quite an expedition getting to these remote higher altitude ponds. We moved fallen trees out of rutted dirt roads, we were roadblocked by national forest gates, we 4x4 crawled over large boulders...

I have a guide friend who is an avid hatch matcher. He will carefully pump the stomach of the first trout he catches, and dutifully inspect the contents. He will then tie on whatever the trout he caught has been eating.

I must admit that the fish guide business is demanding to say the least. I have spent every day this past week trying hard to get salmon onto the flies of people fishing with me. The days are starting with an alarm going off at 2:30 AM and I am returning home at 8 or 9 in the evenings. This is as close as I have came to having a time clock to answer to since 1988 and it is proving to be demanding work.

I was thinking back on all the posts I've seen from people who are determined to...
