Despite the bigger sized fish at the dam, how I yearned to be at some of my favorite downstream runs (alone...) casting dry-flies and fooling nice rainbows and browns...maybe next year?
Thanks for the pic Sherrie!
Ya know, you watch these fisherman with a guide and it looks so easy to net these fish when the guide nets em for ya. But I gotta tell ya, I missed this fish 3 times before netting him...it was an adventure in fly-fishing. That said, this fish had so many hook marks in his mouth his "lips" were near gone. I was prouder of the brown above caught on my mysis shrimp. His mouth was virgin - or near enough for me ;)
