Default Hikin' n Fishin' Part 2 (Friday, June 8th)

Back on the trail this weekend with a few buddies. We had an excellent time, though we endured some tough elevation gains and thunderstorms.

I convinced my cohort to camp our first night by a good wild trout stream. Friday night, after we set up camp, I quickly rigged my gear and headed to a little run. In the fading light, I caught my best wild rainbow to date!



Put up a great fight - I'm so used to quickly landing 5" trout in my hat, so this was a great surprise. Took him on a natural hare's ear dropper rig.

A few minutes later, got this beauty - plenty of spunk as well!



Woke up next day and set out on our hike. Picked off a few brookies on the way - one a decent size that jumped off the hook at the last second. Put my good friend on his first ever trout! A great joy to see him come alive with excitement for even a small guy - they are so cool! A highlight moment of the weekend.



Took the dry fly - quickly released.

Other cool stuff:





Ticks were out in force - wear your bug spray.

Have a great week!

That's awesome your friend caught his first. I imagine he's hooked now.

Great report and pix; that first bow is a stud.
