Default First time out

Had last Monday off. Kids in school, wife at work, forecast in the 70's so I headed for Deckers. Not too many people on the water and it was a beautiful day to fish. It felt very good to step into the river since I haven't been able to get out since December. I realized how easy it is to lose my touch as I went for a lot of the morning without a good hook-up. Started the day above Deckers and finished it a bit below the bridge down from the fly shop. Did get some nice strikes on nymphs and streamers, landed one and lost a very nice brown to finish the day. Here are a few shots - a couple of the river and one of the rainbow who took a #10 golden stone drifted through a deep and fast run. The brown took a 24 baetis nymph and threw it after a brief fight.

William: Congrats on getting out on the water, that certainly is a hard place to concentrate on fishing, the scenery is just awesome. A Brown on a size 24 fly is a tough proposition anytime.

Agreed, bet I feels good to hook up for the first time this year. I can't wait!

It was a great day to get out, glad to see some nice pics of fish. Looks like a great day, beautiful scenery and fish.

I haven't got to fish the Deckers stretch ever, just once up Cheesman Canyon

I was a great day both weather, scenery and finally getting on the water. Hope to head out again soon Deckers can be pretty busy making the fishing not fun, but during the week it isn't bad and I enjoy fishing it.
