The first epiphany on the hike in? The boys really need some good hiking boots if we're going to do much hiking. The second? I need a backpack that doesn't kill my shoulders the moment I put it on (I didn't even have that much stuff packed). Once at the lake I started to work on making this a successful trip for my boys and it didn't take long for Atley to haul in a nice Cutthroat.
|Pretty good one!|
|He was afraid that he'd drop it|
My Dad tried just about everything he had in his box, but he just couldn't find what they wanted (even when he tried the flies that were working for us). I tried to help him out, but sometimes there's no escaping the skunk.
|Definitely one of the prettier places I fish, that's why it's my blog's background!|
|Hard to tell in the pic, but the one furthest from us will be a pretty nice bull|
When we got back to the house we reconvened with the conference goers and the wife made us an awesome hamburger dinner. After eating we were back out the door to hit a small stream in the hopes of finding some fish.
|Feels good to hook one after a lot of missed strikes|
Hope you're as lucky,
|Browns love the dark!|
