And…

Yes I have been fishing. Once a week unfortunately. I went and took a full-time job a few months ago and the change has been painful. To go from setting your own hours to being in an office from 8:30-5 is a hard transition for a fly fisher to say the least.

I did however get to go down to the McKenzie with Alex on Saturday and we had a great time enjoying the weather and exploring. We don’t usually stay lower on the river due to the amount of people around but that is the only section open right now. We found some really great sections with beautiful holes and sweet runs (not that it’s hard to find those on the McKenzie) but no trout could be enticed. We got back in the car and we were going to head just a mile or so up the river but we ended up miles up the river on one of the upper reservoirs. We have a little place up there that seems to offer up fish on every trip. This time we got there and Alex got a yank on one of his first casts and I got a nice take a few cast in. We must be out of practice because neither of us managed to land our fish.Then I got a rally nice hold over hatchery fish and managed to get him a few feet from me before I lost him. Oh well, at least it was fun to have my 5 weight back in hand and to see it bowed over. And the season begins…

I promise to post more often (as soon as taxes are done).
