Worth the Walk
I took a little hike last week. Twice. The first, a shakedown walk of sorts to test the legs. My expectations were to only get a mile or two up the trail. But, the snowline had retreated hastily, the trail was clear. I arrived to find a thawed lake, sans fly rod. Two days later I returned packing fishing gear.
The fishing? Well, slow. I got a few, but had to work for them. They were surprisingly spooky already. A bead head prince got a couple, the rest liked a soft hackle. Pretty fish all. Well worth the hike.
