I haven't been fishing NEARLY as much as I'd like--not with a house to build and a diagnosis of cancer so my favorite trip and my favorite fish of the year were extra special--for lots of reasons!!!

It was one of those rare trips were almost everything was perfect. The timing needed to be pretty spot on; the weather was cooperating; the fish were in the system; bugs were hatching and we had the flies to match!

The fish weren't monsters by any means but almost everything we caught was on some sort of dry fly pattern!

Trinity River-- a mix of steelies and I guess a few VERY nice resident fish?
