The River Damsel just rolled in from a five day adventure to Colorado! A beautiful river, The Frying Pan, was the destination. I have so much to write about and a vid that needs to be done... But, until then, I am going to direct you over to the "Midgeman" at The Midge Manifesto. He got back a little earlier than I did and has already put together a wonderful video called "The Gathering". Thanks to the others who joined in the fun, (Josh from Bigerrfish and Dustin, Stephanie, and Drake from Antlers and Gills). It was a few days of fly fishing on one of the most scenic rivers with beautiful trout that I have ever seen...
One quote from Rod's post that is up now, "In addition we all got a good look at a couple of trout over 25 inches that the Damsel worked hard for, got them to take and then found out that 6X makes for some interesting battles with the big guys. I believe the quote was jokingly "This ain't Montana Emily, leave the 3X in the car", but to see her eyes when that big old boy rolled up on the surface and we all got a look at him was priceless! Sometimes a fish lost is the most lasting memory!"
Yes, I lost a few of those "pigs", but I also hung on to a few... = )
Practice, practice, practice!!
See you back here in a few days for the wrap up of an incredible journey.
