Finally, I had the opportunity to fish the Trico hatch with my good fishing buddy, Dave W this morning.
The Tricos were prolific, as were the fish rising for them; however, our fishing success was not quite so exemplary.
It always amazes me that these little gems can discern our tiny size 22 handmade concoctions from those naturemade ones even in swift, riffly water. But by this time of year, these little fellows are much wiser than those pursuing them - particularly on this given day.
We did get lucky on occasion.
Today, I realized how much I had missed fishing, and with the imminent arrival of our (my wife and I) first "bundle of joy", it may prove to be difficult in the coming months. But we still have 5 more weeks of waiting, and with the migratory salmon fishing only 1 good rainfall away, I plan on making the most of it.
See you on the water soon.
