Camping 2011 - Day 1

I arrived to the campsite early afternoon. After choosing a spot near the lake, I unpacked the truck and set up camp.

I had fully planned on launching the boat next, but a brief thunderstorm nearby changed my mind. Instead, I hung out at the campsite, and after it went away, rigged up my new 3wt with a dry fly and went fishing in a nearby fishing hole.

The result!
After fishing, I headed back to camp, started a fire, and fired up some charcoal in the grill to make dinner.

The rest of the evening, I spent relaxing next to the fire, and getting my pack ready for the big hike the next day.

Wife goes fishing!

Well my wife and I went back to the same spot last week as my first post. Nothing, nada, not even a nibble. Just lost 2 flies to a rock or tree...

After a while we decided to move to the lake and my wife's favorite location. We didn't really have any luck there either. The only thing we managed to catch was this nice little brookie on standard tackle.

In other news, my new TFO 3wt arrived. So I'm looking forward to hitting up the small streams later this summer when runoff slows down a bit!
