Exploring New Private Water

Every once in a while, the guides at Dan's Fly Shop "have to" explore new private water to see if it is worth taking clients there.  Most of our work days involve taking other people fishing, but on this day, the guides were asked to fish the water themselves.

Beautiful day to "have to" go fishing

Nice brown

The conditions weren't great (warm, muddy water), but we did hook into some nice browns.

Lake City Evenings

I spend most of my evenings in Lake City on the river chasing big fish, but if I'm not on the river, I try to get out as the sun sets over the mountains.

Time on the Water

When I'm not on the water guiding, I'm probably on the water with the Revenge Run crew or, if our days off haven't lined up, out on the water on a solo mission.  Most days I am fishing until it gets dark sometime around or after 9 pm.  That means I'm home most days close to 10 pm for a late dinner and a quick shower before heading straight to bed.
