Everybody and their brothers...

Weather was just too nice the other day not to get on the water. Drove up to the Big Thompson River and met a couple friends below the dam. Was sunny, but the wind was blowing like a SOB! Lot of cars in the parking area...think I counted two dozen at one time. On a Monday????

Fishing was slow. Best fly was a #22 Jujubee fished deep...trout laying low and not being very aggressive. Had to stay low...long winter shadows! Only a small bit of ice along the edges.

Man Bling!

If any of you are considering a gift of jewelry for the male fly fisher in your life...please take my advice. Don't do it! Get him a new ceramic bobbin for fly tying, a fancy fly box or just a bunch of hooks! Tiers always need more hooks.
Cuff links, tie clips and watchbands are masculine...but still pretty lame. Live crayfish, on the other hand, are always classy.
