Now I know it has been a while since my last post but I hope the following will make up for my negligence.
The other day my brother came out to visit and we took a trip up to the mountains to fish a small stream for those three trout that make fly fishing so much fun. Getting up early to load the gear, we headed out with low expectations and an eagerness to finally spend some time trout fishing together.
With a quick stop for gas, some pastries, and very bad coffee we were soon in under way. I haven't seen my 'little' bro in about two years and I couldn't tell you how long its been since we have fished together. With the two of us living on opposite sides of the country we rarely get the chance to do to much together and this was a trip I was looking forward to.
After about an hour I ran back to the car to grab my 2w for some streamer fishing. I was gone about 6-7 minutes and when I got back I was informed that my fishing partner had caught about a fish a minute for the length of time that I was absent.
I ended up trying out just about every fly in my box just to make it interesting. Flies I never would break out on any normal day even got into the action. I didn't want to leave anybody out and for some this was their only chance to see some action. In reality I would say that I was switching flies just to see which ones wouldn't work. It was just one of those days that will stick in ones mind for years to come.
Beautiful water, great weather, excellent fishing, and unbelievable company for a day on the water.
