on Sunday morning with the wives in tow... stay with me here.

My buddy and I are very fortunate to have wives that share our love of the outdoors. My wife has fished with me every once and a while for a couple years now and our amigos have just decided to get their fly fishing feet wet this year.

I came up with a plan and a stream that would allow us to fish all we wanted, providing no one beat us there, without falling all over each other.

Tied on a stimulator and bhpt for my first attempt. Noticed a few small trout taking notice of the dry but didn't see this guy scoping out the dropper.

Largest fish of the day and pretty nice for the water it came from.

Here is a time line of a nice little pool and a silly little rainbow.

At the end of the day everyone caught at least one and and one of us caught a few more than that. We had a great day and didn't see another fisherman. Hope everyone had a great weekend and if you weren't out fishing...we were. :p

GrouseMan--The fish and the ladies are pretty (never mind the slightly unladylike behavior from the latter), and it sounds like a glorious day. I could make a couple of educated guesses on your destination but the ones I have in mind would not be locales where I would have thought you would have been devoid of competition.

Nicely done, GrouseMan. I notice the SJW - was that a popular menu item?

Gotta say, though: There's no tongue-sticking-out in fly fishing!

The SJW must be an acquired taste...only a few patrons were interested.

I can allow the tongue-sticking-out if there is no whining.
