Skunked

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...

A Fish I Never Caught

Posted 06-24-2014 at 08:23 AM by mridenour

Sunday, my fishing buddy and I headed south to fish some waters known to have my favorite species of fish, the brown trout. I was excited, especially since I hadn't caught one this year.

As we arrived a big storm with tons of thunder and flashes of lightning served up a lot of heavy rain. We decided we might take an afternoon nap to pass the time until the rains let up. It was a good plan but I never even leaned back in the seat. Sitting there looking at the water stimulated...
