Got up late. Made some breakfast. Glanced at Moldy Chum. Slammed a pint of coffee. Tied some flies. Read a few fellow blogger posts. Took a gander at some fish pics circulating the inter-web.
By dumb luck, happened to run into a few friends on the river. Tied on a streamer. Made some casts. Stuck a cut-bow. Took some pictures.
Laughed a lot. Watched some birds. Frozen fingers. Should have worn another coat. It isn't 37 degrees today. They said it was supposed to be 37 degrees today. Waders leak, I really start to notice. The dog's definitely having the most fun.
|Livin' the Life.|
Switch to nymphs. Slip on the shelf ice. Nobody sees me, I'm temporarily safe from humiliation. Catch a small brown. My buddy catches a bigger one. Take more pictures.
|The camouflaged wonder with a mighty fine "feesh".|
Sit and shoot the breeze for a while. Watch some more birds. Watch some deer. Make a few more half-hearted casts. Lose my rig on a tree branch. Call it a day. Walk back to the car. Happy to be alive. Watch the snow showers roll over the mountains. Soak in a few minutes of sunshine.
Watch the sun go down over the Bitterroots. Go home. Make Chili. Eat Chili. Perfect day.
