Summer Eats

It is just the best time to be out fishing your favorite lake, river or stream. It seems all the fish are up, active and eating. With all the great winter water, we have lots of rivers and streams teaming with
cool, clean and clear water. The fish seem to be chowing do too. It is so nice to fish big hair or foam flies, having the fish come up and pound them. Early mornings or late evenings, the fish are willing.

Get out and catch a couple of them.

Three Hour Tour

The summer monsoon's had showed up for several days and destroyed the river, 
so we figured the next best thing was to just go float and enjoy a little dirty high water.
What seemed like a nice day at the put in, suddenly turned into the ride to remember.
A few lines from Gilligan's Island were hummed as the weather started getting rough,
the lighting was flashing, hail was pounding. 

It has been while since I have had a surprise like this on the river.

More Practice

Now that run off has subsided and the water is clear again, it is time to breakout the underwater housing and work on 50/50 shots and underwater shots. Need to keep honing these down.
Certainly takes a lot of patience to learn and use.

Rover by Bote'

 With the summer Outdoor Shows and the ITFD show, there will plenty of new
products coming out to entice us. The Rover by Bote' is a pretty ingenious way
to incorporate the SUP/ skiff for one person. 
Check out this cool little video they out on it. You will want one.

Guide's Dog

Queso, aka " Fishspotter " taking a little rest prior to another day on the river with dad.
Queso is happiest chasing cattle or spotting fish. Always wearing her PFD and ridding side-saddle
in the raft.

Crazy Catch

Sometimes an ordinary catch turns into to something neat.

Earlier this weekend while throwing stimulators along the bank an average but nice 17" brown
inhaled the #14 olive Stimi, while taking out the fly he spit up this small sucker he had obviously eaten earlier in the day or days. I had not had that happen. Pretty cool.......
