  1. On this trip I met up with RXflyfishing from Instagram. He has a great instagram channel, and I was excited to fish the creeks and streams I see him fish all the time on his account. The Jemez mountains are beautiful, and filled with small creeks that hold wild trout. This trip we were catching wild brown trout, and wild cutthroat. The cutthroat were of the Rio Grand subspecies and were very beautiful. All of the fish were caught on dry flies, and with a light action fly rod, so it was fun even though they were small. Also, the technical side of fishing such a small creek is expensive. You really have to pin point your cast, and while the trout were readily coming up for our dries, it was because we were using the right fly. There was a whole 2 hour period that trout were just watching my fly go past them, because I wasn't using the right one. They were picky, and also skittish as well. So you had to have the right flies tied on, and approach the creek with ease. Also, the creek was tiny, and lined with bushes/grasses. So making a cast was near impossible at some spots, and you had to be deadly accurate! Now that above might seem like a recipe for a frustrating time on the water. However it was not, it was very enjoyable! It was very good fishing if you were using the right flies, accurate with your casts, and subtle with your approach to the creek. The fish were very happy to eat if you do it the right way. And I also was fishing with a fun dude, so we had a great time!
  2. Brookies brookies every where! Man, that 2nd creek I hit up was amazing wasnt it? If I went there first, I have a feeling I could have gone further, and gotten some more fish. I hear there are some larger brown trout up further in that creek, and the brooks seemed to get larger the further up I went also. These were beautiful little fish, and ones that pulled quite well on that small 2wt rod.
