Next week we're going back. Hopefully, we'll relive some memories from 2004 and make some new ones...fly-fishing for trout with more experience these days, and better digital camera equipment.
Here are a few pictures from our 2004 trip. Maybe we'll be fortunate enough on this trip to catch some 20+ inch fish.

Getting nymphs to the bottom of the water column and into the feeding lanes should do the trick. Anything from Copper Johns to Bird's Nests to Prince Nymphs and Pheasant Tails (add some red Brassies to the mix). We will be hunting for trout. And, maybe we'll drag some streamers for the BIG fish. Not maybe, for sure!
Anyway, we'll post our fishing reports here on the Virtual Fly Guides website. Stay tuned...not just for pictures of fish and reports on what we caught them on, but for some nature photography, too.
