Default Pics of NorCal trip.

We are having a great time up here and unfortunately we have to go home today . One more fishing session and the McCloud flea market perhaps. Some nice big bugs up here and some nice fish. I thought I'd share some pics with you all.

I think this is a McCloud Redband/Rainbow hybrid.

Hey Siski - while my gal has a nice tight loop (nicer looking cast than mine) her water reading and line mending/line control/drift control skills are still developing. The Upper Sac was giving her trouble with the high flows and tricky drifts. The Upper Mac was great for her, with the lower flows, easier drifts and sillier fish. She really doesn't care for too much advice and has stated that she has just as much fun getting skunked so I am willing to bite my lip and let her learn on her own. I couldn't ask for more in a fishing partner anyway.

A friendly fellow customer at Ted Fay Fly Shop named John was giving us some fly choice advice and he asked,"How did you get your wife into fly fishing?" she got a big kick out of that.

So the easier nature of the Upper Mac, the fact that we had a non-fishing, non-outdoorsman friend along (an encounter with a McCloud rattler might have made it necessary to carry a freshly fainted person back to the car) and we were in a borrowed car (an encounter with the dirt road leading to the lower could have been hard on the borrowed sedan) kept us away from the Lo-Mac. Plus I've never visited the upper with its charming crowds and beautiful views! We had a great time.

My gal got some good pics of the golden stones and salmon flies too. I especially like the photo essay or triptych, if you will, that I, in my mind have entitled,"The deconstruction of a stone fly."

I love the McCloud and Pit rivers. Two of my favorite streams in NorCal. There is some great fishing up there. I caught my rainbow on a fly on the Pitt in 1980. Looks like a great trip.

Hey I don't blame you! And if it's the John I'm thinking (local guide and friend) I can count the number of guys who know that water better on half a hand so very cool.
Dig all the pictures. Let me know the next time you're coming back up. Sooner then later I hope!
