there seems to be a fair number of fish around. Had my first guide days this weekend and we did pretty good. It was hard to believe, but the river was pretty crowded, I'll get used to that but it just seems early for such pressure. I got to fish with Peter Tronquet for two am sessions. Saturday we rose two, but couldn't get them to eat. I'd never seen a fish move so much water to get to a fly, but it missed. Sunday we were lucky enough to have one eat the dry, this fish gave us an epic battle, we must have thought we lost it at least three times. The odds were against us with that fish, but someow we landed him. Maybe the fish gave Peter a break for all the work and time he has devoted to saving them.
I'm off the river for about a week.
