It's All About Mojo ~ Sunday Tippets, Damsel Style



From the World English Dictionary...

Mojo means:


1.  an amulet, charm, or magic spell

2.  the art of casting magic spells
3.  uncanny personal power of influence


Once upon a time, it was a cold, cold winter.  RD kept fishing, although there were some dismal days with frozen fingers.  But, Spring has sprung!  And so has the catch and release rate... Whoohoo!


Nothing like listening to trains while you are fishing...


Something is definitely different at the river recently.  Maybe a few more hatches.  Or maybe a little bit of River Damsel "Mojo" being cast out the last couple of months.  Ever since my trip to Montana last month... It has been a heck of a good run.  This guy got a good dose of sow up the nose...


If you have read my blog in the past, you know that I love Mr. Brown Trout.  But, recently... I have turned my attention to a new river friend, Mr. Bonneville Cutthroat.  I haven't really caught too many cutties in my fly fishing adventures.  So, it has been kind of fun to find new water that is home to these beautiful native trout.


This one got a dental check-up (Did he have some teeth!)  as I had to take the fly off the back of his tongue.  Ugh.  When you have a good case of "Mojo", take advantage of it.  Because not everything lasts.  Sure, I will have that skunk sometime in the future again, I'm sure.  But, as long as this "Mojo" run lasts... I will enjoy every minute of it.  So, what is causing this spell or magic that is bringing all of these fish to my net?


SUNDAY TIPPET
 



The "Mojo" is coming from the hat.  No, don't ask me to remove it.  Well, not until I have a crappy day.  = )    Ok.  So, here is the REAL "Tippet" for you today.  I have to plug a new product, TroutHunter Tippet, that I picked up when I was in Idaho last month.  I love this stuff!  (It could very well be the reason why I am catching more fish lately)  We know that it really can't be the hat... right?


Now, if only the "Mojo" would help me take better pictures!!! Haha.

  1. I'm loving your mojo, even the headless fish pics :) I've managed to string together three days of fishing for the first time since last summer and caught some nice fish each day. Mojo is a great thing!

  2. Rebecca - I guess that's why every day is an adventure when you fish....

    1. Oh...that's right. As long as I fish in your behalf... Now, what do I do if you start fishing? Lol.

  4. Could be the hat, could be the tippet. It's only weird if it doesn't work. Where have I heard that before? What ever the Mojo is, don't change, grab it while it's hot.

    2. I don't think that was the "Mojo" that Mark was referring to!

  5. Your Sunday Tippets just get better and better! :) I'm glad that all your hard work and learning and days spent fishing are paying off for you. I believe we make our own "luck" and you've paid your dues with time on the water! It's nice to see you have a break out year and nail lots of fish - and have so much fun doing it!

    1. OWl... I appreciate that. It has been a long three or four years now and seeing my skills improve is a heck of a lot of fun. Still much to learn, but I will beat the odds. = )
