Default Got a chance to get out again

So the other day my friend Jeremy called me and wanted to know if I wanted to go fishing on Sunday. Not wanting to pass on the opportunity to go fish I agreed. Although I just had fished this river I was still excited about going fishing. Plus not having to drive was a nice change

He got to my house at around 0615; we threw my gear in the car and headed out. On the way to the river we stopped off for some doughnuts the breakfast of champions Not long after we were back on the road and heading to our destination.

Once we got to the river we drove to the first spot that we were going to fish. On the way up we saw fish rising everywhere. Jeremy said “man if it like this we should have a killer day”. After we parked we got out and got geared up. After we were all geared up we noticed Paul’s truck (he shot me an email saying he was going to meet up with us). Paul and Matt got out, we all BSed for a bit. Paul was very nice and handed us a small box of a dozen flies that he had tied. He said that these were that new variation that he made and that he had a killer day with them last Monday. We thanked him; he said that they were going to go check out another hole.


Jeremy and I made our way down to the run and started to fish. I will admit that it took me a bit longer than I expected to get my first hook up. Unfortunately this ended up being a LDR. I went right back to fishing and got another strike. This time when I set the hook the rod came to life and stayed that way. This fish had some nice power, and made a few runs. I landed him a short time later and took a few photos and sent him on his way.

I asked Jeremy if he wanted to try that spot and he said sure. He fished it for a bit and a few LDRs. He then said that he was going to head up river. I moved back into my spot and continued fishing. I managed to land two more before he returned.



When he returned I let him have the top of the run, and I moved to the bottom of the run. I was having a bit of a dry spell so I decided to switch and throw some streamers. I only had two takes on the streamers and unfortunately I missed getting a good hook set and lost both fish.



I decided to go back to nymphing. Meanwhile Jeremy was at the top of the run still having the same luck as he had been having all morning. I got a new nymph rig tied on and made my way to the bottom of the run. I threw out my first cast and shortly thereafter my I saw my indicator go crazy. I thought to myself man this thing must have hammered that fly. This fish had some serious power much more than the previous fish I had on the end of my line that day. I landed this fish took a couple of shots and sent him on his way.

After that fish Jeremy suggested that we go check out another spot. So we went back to the car and headed to a different hole. When we got there I said to Jeremy “go ahead and fish the hole and get your skunk off, I am going to take some shots”. It did not take Jeremy long to get the skunk off. He was rewarded for his efforts with this nice “little” guy.

We fished several different spots during the rest of the day. I had a few more LDRs but none to net. Jeremy managed one other really nice one.



I took some more scenery shots hope you enjoy.

Whenever I see a thread started by Sasha with a title like this, I know it is going to be a good read with some great pictures to go with it. Just makes me want the winter to end even more...
