Default There's no Place Like Home

I've been fortunate to visit creeks & rivers in the Southern and Eastern Sierras this last 6 weeks as I anxiously awaited for my local waters to cool sufficiently. Yesterday, I jumped out with my best fishin' buddy for a scouting of some canyon runs.

5 minutes from home and I remember why I love local fishing with a 1wt. It's good to be home again.

Wonderful photos; easy to see why you'd love to fish that location.

Creeker, you are certainly blessed to have water like that 5 minutes from home! My "home waters" are all quite a ways away.

Creeker: From what I have read about fishing in New Zealand to huge trout in really skinny ultra clear water, you should be all set with the stealth practice you're getting on your home stream.
