"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

I found him in July, he was in a odd place too. A large shallow pool, I was actually looking for the large caddis that are in that river.

We get them that size over here on the Roaring Fork, Colorado, and Gunnison. I usually throw a size 6 20inch Stone nymph, or a Halfback.
