The Drifter

This guy fairly naturally took to dragging and flipping rigs upstream and high-sticking with the current. I think he got some hits but no connections yet. Didn't help that the water was worked over all day before we fished it.


This guy picked a fight with a mother goose sitting on her eggs. To match her, he spread his arms out wide and hissed in her face. They were nose to nose, maybe 4-5 inches apart. Goose took one solid shot at kid and nipped him. Kid hit goose (lightly) with a 2010 version golden rod.

All the while singing this. He's got it pretty well memorized.



From backyard:


2010 speckled trout lettuce that wintered over. This did not work quite as well as 2009 to 2010, but we had a number of viable plants when snow melted.


Worst thing about April is that it has an end. Attention turning to one more C&R outing. Skipping town while mobs hit streams for catch and keep opener. Returning mid-week to fish dry flies and bring home salmo trutta.

Man I can't wait for that picture of your boy grinning from ear to ear having caught one on his own. Glad you got to enjoy one of the nicer days this month.

That goose was in danger. It was a memorable face off.

This year, the kids should hook some of their own trout. I feel it coming on.
