My whole family decided to head to the mountains for a few days. All the women headed home Saturday afternoon, so I decided to fish for a few hours. I had brought my little 30 year old Sharpes Scottie that I hadn't fished in a couple of years, so I headed to a small stream first. I tied on a Thunderhead for a few minutes and rapidly discovered that wasn't the ticket. I changed to an orange palmer and it was fish out of every likely spot until I got tired of it. I fished for less than an hour and caught about nine or ten rainbows. That was enough of that dinky stuff. I hopped back in the car and headed for some bigger water. I parked, changed rods, and started walking. I found one pool that looked promising. I saw a fish move, cast and caught a 16 inch brown. I moved up a little further and cast again and caught a 18 incher. That was that for that pool. I walked back to the car and headed downstream. I found another spot that looked promising and hopped out and realized the pool was too deep for my beetles. I looked upstream and there was a decent pool for what I wanted to do. I headed that way and caught one 12 inch brown. I hopped in the car and headed for the four hour drive home.

Naah, Al. This was short vacation time, spoil the girls and take my 81 year old mother off time. I am missing the Smith big time. I am ready to catch some pretty browns. Smaller but prettier!
