California Trouting

After long delay here is an adventure from late March.
Somehow the Banger and I found ourselves drinking Sierra Nevada, while fishing in the Sierra Nevadas.

a good brown from the Walker river

After fishing driftless streams all spring every fish here seemed enormous, but apparently 16-20inch browns are the norm

I don't spend much time nymphing, I'm usually throwing streamers or dries, but this trip made me appreciate the skill involved in nymphing and how difficult mending line can be.

This was my first time on an actual guided fly fishing trip and I have to say it was pretty awesome, kudos to Lake Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters and our guide Peter, he kept us on fish all day and was a damn good story teller.
