This year we decided to have dinner later in the day and with no extended family in town Sue gave me a pass to fish for a few hours. With temps approaching 60* I decided to venture up into SNP. I haven't been in the park in over a year and felt I was way overdue. This year life has been crazy with the opening of the hotel and my fishing time has been greatly affected. I wasn't concerned so much about catching anything but it was just great to get out.

The water was really flowing with the recent rains. No activity up top so I tied on a BrentG PT Socthackle and enticed a few :)

Dave, not sure how I missed this the first time around. Looks like a great day and I'm sure you were glad to get after em again. We should hook up in the Park sometime.
