Default A creek, some fish, mostly peace

So I wrangled away an afternoon and day off Wednesday and Thursday. I headed to this drainage ditch that I remembered from my backpacking days long ago and before I knew trout fishing.

Got there Wednesday afternoon to experience something for me that is rare, afternoon fishing. I had borrowed all of Buck's really fancy costume boots, waders, net, etc. incase anyone saw me they would think I was some kind of a fly fisher... Nobody saw me. I was all alone and had a most wonderful experience. Caught several fish on an elk hair caddis. I hadn't fished one of this in a long time. Decided to tie on a dropper cause a couple of runs had water deeper than 12". Wouldn't you know it I caught a few more. All were between 7" and 12" and not pellet fed!

I returned all of Buck's fancy stuff and returned the next day in my wet wading outfit. And wouldn't you know it ran into one other fisher. Nice guy and I hope he had the same or better success in the runs I had fished the evening before.

I went further up the ditch on Thursday and caught several more fish with one surpassing the 12" marks on my rod. It was a spectacular day and a half of quiet fishing. Didn't do any counting cause thats what work is for; counting sales, profits, payables, etc. Don't need that when I'm out enjoying myself in nature.

The fish were all incredibly healthy looking and thanked me for making the trip.

What a great time to be alive!

It's good hear people getting out an enjoying the outdoors. Especially, when it pertains to fishing. Glad to hear of your success and enjoyment.

I'm stuck at the house... Any pics of the scenery or your catch would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Enjoyed your post.
