Chapter 58 Day 95 - Trout Season

More Video From Blue River

About three or so years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Byron Dowd.  At that time Byron along with one of his friends Byron called SteveO were coming to Blue at a regular clip.

This trout season it was quite noticeable, to me at least, that Byron was missing in action on Blue River.  It was easy to understand though because Byron is one of those guys who seems to have a lot of irons in the fire.  One of those irons seems to be his passion for music and performing, and with that taking up a lot of his time he hasn't been on the water as much. 

So, I sent Byron a message several weeks ago asking about his whereabouts and suggesting he consider entering the One Fly contest. 

The good news is Byron is checking his schedule to see if he can make the One Fly and as a warm-up, most likely for this event, he did in fact make it to the river this week. 

He was good enough to share his day on the water through a video he created using his new toy - a Go Pro Hero 2.  In watching Byron's creation it makes my feeble video attempts with my regular camera even more weak.  Going to have to get one of those Go Pro Hero puppies soon. 

I asked Byron if he'd mind me sharing his video with the rest of the brothers and sisters of Blue River and he said, "No problem my friend". 

So with all this being said, here is Byron's video that covers several parts of the river including the catch and release.
