|Not the biggest fish, but I really like the pic|
I threw on a longer leader with a Hare's Ear Parachute and enjoyed the first really good dry fly fishing of the year. As I moved upstream I startled a very young fawn out of it's bed. We stood about 15 feet apart, staring each other down. As I reached for my camera the young deer hopped off, and I didn't want to stress him too much, so I let him go without a picture. Lucky the fish were more than willing to come to hand for a picture.
|Only Cutt of the day|
|This brown thought he was a rainbow and jumped five times before coming to hand|
|Not the biggest fish, but these wild, dry fly eaters are fun to catch|
|I love throwing to specific fish that are rising|
|It sure is a nice set up!|
With more fish to hand than I, or anyone else, really deserves I called it a day and made it home by early afternoon to spend some time with the family. Unfortunately, there was something in the air that made my eyes swell up so bad that I was pretty much miserable for the rest of the day and the next morning. Still had a great time and can't wait to get back out there, though I may take allergy pills before I go.
Hope you're as lucky,
