|Cache La Poudre|
Last year we fly fished the Big Thompson, Poudre, Boulder Creek, and several other RMNP creeks. I'm sure that there will be some new ones added to the mix this year! It should be a great time.
We will meet for breakfast one morning before heading out. And like last year, we will have a group dinner to start everything out on Thursday or Friday night. Only 3 months away my friends! Whoohoo...
And there is always a good time at a local fly shop that has an extra special place in my heart! Rocky Mountain Anglers ~ Thanks again to Jay Zimmerman, the best fly removal from fingers in the West! Lol. It will not be repeated this year, btw.
And of course, we will snap a few group photos as well. And we plan on Howard being there instead of the hospital this year! Yes, for sure!!
Every once in awhile, I get the urge to do a video on the river. So, I had an incredible fish come out of the group I caught Saturday and wanted to share my excitement! But, with one hand holding the fish and the other holding the phone cam...well, let's just say that it is far from Ivan's, Yukon Goes Fishing great videos!!
Howard at Windknots and Tangled Lines was supposed to "critique" it for me as a last minute hope that it wasn't too stupid and I could post it. Well, the next thing that I knew, his "critiquing" meant his "posting" it as "Romancing The Bow" on FB!! Ahhhhh... How I set myself up for that one. I might as well put it out there for all of you to have a good laugh. What the heck. I think that we will just chalk up this poor effort to "RD's Silliest Fish Vids" and call it good. Now, just remember that I do know how to speak English. Somehow, I got in a goofy mood and I sound like I am from Sweden or something! Lol. Enjoy laughing at my expense. It's only 30 seconds...so no real damage will be done. = )
Sunday Tippet: Stick to still photo shoots if you are winging it alone on your fishing trip. It's much easier than trying to balance a fish, your vid cam, and talking all at the same time!!
(Well, maybe some of you can do that without a problem...I don't know) And don't ask anyone to "critique" your work if you aren't too fond of it. Lol.
A nice 20" rainbow for RD!!
I am glad you posted Emily, just remember who posted it first with your your permission and WHO didn't!ReplyDelete
Ahhhh...There will be a day that I will be able to return the favor to him. = )ReplyDelete
I hope it will be something REALLY embarrassing too!ReplyDelete
After having been knowingly videoed dancing with a large chicken head on (luckily it never found it's way to FB)I have no shame.ReplyDelete
I just hope you don't bring it along when we fish in July! Lol.Delete
That video was a perfect example of catch and release; congrats on the big rainbow, what pattern did the big boy fall to? Thanks for sharing
Bill - Ha! You didn't see the fish massage I gave him before he took off! Yes..I do try to give them a proper return. I caught this guy on the now famous Spencer Higas S.O.S. It can be ordered on the Orvis's website. It's a winner!Delete
NIIIIICE! :) It was like he wanted to talk! Oh if fish could talk!ReplyDelete
Owl -. Can you keep a secret? They do! You justa have to listen! Heehee. And holding that reel high...brought him in...Delete
The next time we fish together I'm going to land every fish with my rod tip underwater. :)Delete
PS - I forgot to tell you my secret for video and fishing. Get yourself a small tripod. While playing the fish, take the tripod out of your pack, spilling several tippet spools and a pack of strike indicators into the river. Wrestle with fish, pack and camera as you try to recover the spilled goods. Put spilled goods back into pack and place tripod on rock. Land fish, pose for camera. Put fish back in water. Turn camera to face you. Land fish, pose for camera. Put fish back in water. Turn camera on. Land fish, pose for camera. ....at this point the fish will ask you if you really thing bringing a video camera was a good idea. Look at fish like he's a smart-butt and watch as he slips from your hand, twists free of the hook and is seen laughing all the way back to his holding area. :)
So, can just anyone come to this thing or what?
Owl...That scenerio could be too close to the truth!! I can see it now, actually!! Maybe I am better off inviting friends to shoot vids when needed. Lol. And everyone is welcome to join the Rocky Mountain Frenzy...you don't have to live in the area!!Delete
