Finally, I managed to get to the river at around 4:40. The water was cold, but not too bad, and as clear as the air. When I hooked and landed my first fish on a LaFontaine brown and yellow sparkle pupa, it was 5:20, but still light. How far away can spring be with the daylight hours closing in and taking over the hours of darkness? From then until dark, the three of us caught fish, and called it a day only because we couldn't see anymore.
It was good day all around. The tying seminars went well, with every spot taken for both sessions, and the fishing was good. Sleep will come very easily tonight...........
Matt - thanks for the reminder that spring is just around the corner... another beautiful sunrise today.
I saw that sunrise today, through the blind while I lay in bed like those deer, 'twas brillant orange, and very nice. Matt, my favorite stream looks great with all the run-off. If you ever get a minute this spring, or late winter, I need to take you to it.
Matt-Great Blog. I'm glad to see a blog dedicated to the often "overlooked" caddis. As a caddis connoisseur I thought you might enjoy this video I shot last summer of a caddis hatch here in Alaska. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D44hXDxOuQ4
Keep up the good work, John
