Here's Corey when we went fishing last summer. First time for him to fly-fish. He's one of a few persons who stepped in my secret holes in a mountain stream.
He caught his first Westslope Cutthroat on the fly in the evening. It was actually very rare for my fishing experience in that stream. I haven't caught Westslope in the afternoon even this size. All the good Westslope were caught in the morning. Then somehow rainbows usually come up to dry-flies all afternoon till dark. Westslope in my area are truly native here. Really lovely species. I can't wait to make hikes in summer.
My job schedule doesn't stop me at my bench. I think I might send him a flower??
Or maybe a Prosser Wine along with the grape fly.
Also when I went to Yakima River on 10th (my last post below), I found a leak on my wader. I thought "OMG, do I have to buy a new pair right after I spent on my F-150??". I didn't have to. I found two punctures and patched them. Not a beautiful work but solid for sure.
OK, I will be working with moo-moo cows for a while but I am actually happy (sorry for Corey). With this job for next two weeks or so, I have a perfect reason to get out to Yellowstone National Park late in June!! I have to be compensated, if not being paid more, right folks??
Also, I have to try this patched wader of mine before the trip. But I have just heard a news on the radio this morning that there was a waste water leakage in Yakima River. Without being told, I don't want to get closer. It's actually a spring salmon season right now but folks be aware if you want to eat, not me....................
