Re: Pyramid today thought I would post a few pics
Pyramid is a great winter fishery! I love the quiet, the light, and the fish too!
Had a old local tell me you can't talk about a fish under 10lbs.
Tells you a lot about locals, and the fishery. I have fled cold conditions in Truckee, to find it's even colder down there. In March you dress up like the Michelin Man, and strip streamers till you slice all your fingers. Frozen feet, eyes tearing from the wind, (and then freezing) arm lagging from multitudes of double hauls and then..... Just as you think it's the battiest thing you've ever done, you glance down to see a 2-3ft shadow following your fly. Concentration quickly returns.
When you land a big dog, and lip them, they'll draw blood with their puppy teeth.
You gotta love trout with teeth!
If you and Mojo have a camper, I recommend staying out there for a few days.
I have to agree with the tribe, it's a power place. Great place to recharge your batteries.
Good luck on the remodel/redecorate, it is a true test of a relationship.
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
