Default Frying Pan and tributaries 7/6-8/12

Momma wants to learn to fly fish so out we went for a maiden voyage.

Figured we better go where there are a lot of fish...this could be difficult.

I decided on the Frying Pan and the creeks that feed it. The river is flowing 195 which is high for the pan and especially high (like the gunny at 600) given the drought. I heard it was a Cameo Call for irrigation. This is a good thing.

Started high on the Pan but well below the dam. Fishing was insane. Ruth had six fish on a size 20 pheasant tail in less than an hour. This was an epic first time outing but could be a curse...

We finish that hole and start hopping around. The fish are reluctant to hit dries but we are persistent and soon we have hooked and landed several respectable fish on dries...

We moved to some creeks to find a certain fish which dad was instrumental in and found some really nice fish and the frigging nicest environment to be in I can think of.

All in all it was an awesome weekend and Ruth picked it up well and hopefully is hooked.
