Chapter 58 Day 109 - Trout Season

A Most Pleasurable Day

Today was a joy.  In the south wilderness I fished with John Haney, Chris Adams, Michael Mercurio and the four of us had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Scott Dittner.  Scott was an absolute joy to be around and explore the river with. 

And then, he bought all of lunch. Thanks Scott. 

The weather was pleasant all day long with most of the morning delivering an overcast sky.  The river was a little more stained today than when I was there on Wednesday morning, but, the fish didn't seem to mind.

These trout are beautiful creatures and they have some size to them - two pound trout are quite possible right now. 

Chris had his Bubba Bugger and he was ripping some lips.  Merc was doing what he does best - nymphing.  John is also an excellent nympher and he had his favorite spots and Scott did best on nymphs also - copper john's and a red hot wire nymph.  My fish all came on brown, olive, and black buggers.

After lunch, Merc, John and Scott were going back for more, but, I needed to get back to the prairie home.  Chris... well he was busy tying up more Bubba Buggers for the trout derby this weekend.
