8:40 AM, 38 degrees. Early spring. On the most difficult river I've ever fished. Truly humbling, though Sunday was a great day.
10:40 AM, Warming up with the first big rainbow of 2017. On a #16 pheasant tail nymph.It was a female with roe---rainbows are spring spawners. We quickly put her back so she could continue to repopulate this beautiful river. Thanks, Jimmy, for guiding and teaching us more about the river and how to better catch fish on it.
I'm a southern Christian conservative with a degree in civil & environmental engineering and a passion for the truth of God's Word, writing, hiking, investing, fly fishing, cooking and the great outdoors. My favorite tech invention = spellcheck. There are no such things as rights without responsibility, a free lunch, cheap grace, man-made climate change, successful government engineering, or figuring out when life begins. We're hurling towards the abyss with only One Life-Line: it's not botox, a "living" Constitution, celebrity president, or making nice with Iran. Meanwhile, God gave us His Word, His Son, Grace Upon Grace, family/friends and the greatest country in the world to live--if we can keep it. E-mail: webutante07 at gmail dot com. Thanks for coming by.
