I had hoped to construct the proper fishing report as per LRO Forum instructional guidelines recently introduced but I figure screw it, I will just write stuff and put in photos.
I traveled with my wife and two retrievers one being a Chesapeake Bay retriever. On the 400 plus mile drive from the North my old reliable Suburban started getting tired and coughing and sputtering. I was delayed about two hours in middle Tennessee where I laid under the vehicle and changed a fuel filter. Got soaked in gas but did not fix it. I arrived and visited family for the first could of days. My first fishing day was spent under the vehicle again working on it. It is running better but not perfection.
I was finally able to get to The Snowbird. My wife took the two dogs and my son (In the Army on leave) along with the new “Fiance” (I’m not impressed) hiking while I went fishing.
As soon as I tied on the right flies the games were on. I used a #12 Yellow Stimulator and a #12 Tellico BH and they equally preformed perfectly. I stayed in the same spot for about 1.5 hours and brought about 14 fish to hand. All were released. I continued until I realized the crew had not returned for lunch and had to find them. I recovered them from their 12 mile hike and all were toast.
I think this was the best day of fishing I had in years. There is more to the story but I shall not put it on the open page for all to see. Let’s just say I was shown an error in my “judgment” and quickly corrected my situation upon notification. Luckily my notification was financially painless.
