Back In The Game

Alright folks, I'm back in the game! It's been a while since my last update, but I have gotten some pretty good fishing done. Picked up a Nikon Coolpix S8000 and it takes incredible pictures.

The weather has been HOT, which has affected the fishing quite a bit. Not catching as many as I was a month ago, but catching enough to keep me happy. I checked out the river I call home this past Monday, and the water levels were scary low. The water was very warm and dirty and the fishing was tough. We desperately need rain. I've been spending most of my time in the high country chasing char, but managed to get the slam this past weekend.

Some sad news. While I can't be 100% sure, I believe the monster fish I caught Memorial Day Weekend has been killed. Received the news when I went into a fly shop and showed them the picture of the beast. They promptly showed me a picture of a 24'' brown taken from the same water a couple weeks ago by a FRENCH tourist. We compared the pictures and all agreed that the fish looked eerily similar. Regardless of whether it was that fish or not, that bastard took some good genes out of the river.

Anyways, here are some pictures of my most recent endeavors. Enjoy and stay tuned it!
