3/06/12 Trip (Pic Heavy)
 
Tuesday was the most fun I have had on the stream in months. The early Spring weather had the fish very active. I caught a lot of fish and actually lost count later in the day. All fish were pretty small, but what a blast it was catching all of them. Later in the day, the dry action really picked up, I fished a dry/dropper all day.

I will let the pictures do most of the talking....

First hole of the day, first cast caught this little rainbow.

The day started off catching a bunch of these little guys.

This beautiful little hole gave me 6 fish. That tree limb was a pain in the rear end to fish over.

A little bigger hole, a little bigger fish.

Possible Bigfoot tracks.

Fishing on and looking over my shoulder for Bigfoot.

The first 3 casts into this hole gave me 3 fish.

What I now know are coyote tracks.

The dry action is picking up.

What a beautiful day, 60 degrees, very little wind, I wish I had left the waders at home. I would have been a little cold wet wading, but I could have managed it.

All fished out and heading home. Thank God the 2.5 mile walk back to the truck is all downhill.

Nope, that's wrong... He drinks "Dry Fly" Gin.

Nice little Fish,eerie looking Fishing Spot,it would have been fun on a Light Gear,I would have had more than a Bottle of Gin in The Back Pocket,I bet you were always looking over your shoulder & the hairs on the back of your neck were always standing up.
That's where man's best friend when brought along comes in handy,either a large Four Legged version or a 357 or a 44 Magnum version.

Is it proper form to substitute Sasquatch Hair for Elk Hair when tying an Elk Hair Caddis?

I like these pictures. They make me happy. You should fish more so you can take more.
