But not when it’s the govment doin’ it!
Waaaaaay cheaper, and better too.
Friend of mine called and wanted to fish this weekend so I took him to the spot I fished a week ago on the middle Deschutes. Thought the Salmonflies would be in full swing and tied a few more patterns to tempt the fish. Big flies were still around, and Golden Stones were also present, but the fish were over them. Didn’t even get refusals.
Hiked downstream of where I’d fished last week and found a huge riffle and started catching fish on nymphs and dry flies. Smaller fish, mostly, but there were some bigger ones in there that I didn’t land. Tough nymphing unless you like undoing snags on the gritty boulders, branches, grass and even a sock!
Took a few more photos, had fun, and am only about 25% as sore as last Monday.
