    Default Got one hooked :)

    Over Labor Day weekend, we camped with another couple at Hopewell Lake in northern New Mexico. He's been wanting to learn fly fishing. I'm not the best person to teach, as I'm not particularly proficient, but had him try some casts with a practice rod we have.

    We then went down Placer Creek, which is the outlet of Hopewell. It's small (3-5' wide), brushy and a general PITA to fish, but it's got lots of eager eaters. That is, if you don't spook them first. You usually get just one cast into a pool.

    Well, Sonny managed 3 fish, 3 more than me . And he's now hooked on the sport.

    At least the next day I had better luck: a nice brookie on the first cast of the day and quite a few on the Rio Vallecitos, which Placer empties into.

    Fun time all around.

    We did have a great weekend. Wife's my main fishing buddy - she ALWAYS (well most always) fishes with me. But Sonny's welcome to tag along...
