Something to share

Thread starter #21
Now, I've got at least two places I've been considering on for awhile that me and you and Chris need to hike our old, fat, lazy butts back into to camp for a day or two and catch some relatively unmolested specks and kill them and eat them. :)
Say when. After the Bighorns, there's nothing in the Smokies that daunts me.

Skipped straight to the Golden trout recap - brought back memories. We made 3 different 'climbs' and long treks to catch those Golden's (2 different lakes in MT) in years past. Caught every kind of trout in MT, including a Bull. Completed the WY Cutt slam and multiple different species in CO (greenback), Utah etc. Golden's, in my opinion, are far and away the prettiest trout I have ever held; special, special, special. The struggle, as you wrote, to get to those special waters is real - not for the faint at heart. Thanks for sharing, nice read.

Don't waste those fins! Tater chips from Heaven!

I'm ready when you are.
 
Let's let the creek thaw out first. :D
 
Thanks for sharing I enjoyed reading and looking at your photos.

Smart idea using a longer rod tube as a walking stick, may need to try that out. I have always kept mine on the side of my pack and it constantly gets hung going under/through brush.

Looking forward to the next read!
 
The wife and I rode up to Cabela's after church this morning, and they had a big display of size 1 Wind River reels for $23.99. I remembered reading in the blog that you think they are an adequate reel for the price. I picked one up that's probably gonna find a home on a 3 wt. Redd Classic Trout.
