    Thanks for the report. Great pics!
    There's not a day that goes by that I don't wonder how dreary this world would be if elk were bald and birds had no feathers.

    You need beer after fishing the T.....
    Getting dissed by a fish can cause dry mouth. But, can't imagine driving 10 hrs for a beer.....
    Bring your big stick......I have a protege who is sporting a 8'6" 5wt short glass rod, and is fighting it.
    The tool for the job......He has seen us fishing with bigger sticks, and having an easier time of it.
    Yesterday he said he is now shopping for a new stick. 11 feet is sweet....

    Never fished with anything bigger then my 9’s, other the old school standard surf rods.

    I can hand you one for a test drive.....
    Many guys that try, end up buying.
    If you aren't already a moving water guy, the T is not an easy leg over.....on the other hand, what's life without a challenge.......

    The bar isn't set by the fish we catch, but by the one's we don't.

    over 30 years of stream and river fishing but mainly dry's and streamers. just tried salt water fly fishing this last year it was very cool, but very different. So I think i need go past the owens valley and walkers to check out some of the upper sierra's places.
