The Longest Day

Posted 06-22-2012 at 03:53 PM by milt spawn

I knew the window would be open longer than any other day this year, so I planned for an epic day of dry fly fishing. Loaded the gear the night before, got up early with coffee and the cooler and took off. Arrived at the trailhead and proceeded to rig up and... realized I had used my 4wt reel on a stillwater and thus had a intermediate full sinker spool on it! Well, so much for the dry fly action. Fortunately I'm not a purist and had nymphs and indies with me so I settled on an epic day of short...

A Rough Year for Finding Waldo

Posted 06-19-2012 at 12:32 PM by Ard Stetts

Fly fishing at depth

Posted 05-30-2012 at 12:02 AM by fisher46

I used the 100' because its diameter is far easier to figure then the smaller lbs. It was sensitive but, Ive only done it a couple of times w/ limited success.

I had to go back to work today.... it sucked. Kept trying to tell myself things like... it's only s 4 day week, or Wednesday is my birthday, or it'll break up the day a little. Nope all false motivation. It just sucked.

On a more positive note, after dinner I got all the trees cut down that were in the path of the circle drive I'm working in putting in. Now I just gotta chop them up, stack the wood, and haul away the brush. The on to stump removal, and laying rock. Should make...
