Wade Fishing

Unspoken

It doesn’t look like they will let me embed on the site, but go check out the trailer for the film Unspoken from Living Waters Fly Fishing.   They’ve got some really incredible footage fly fishing for Rio Grande cutthroat.  I love seeing others as passionate about little cutthroat as I am and this video does a pretty good job of documenting that passion.  There is something about the entire process, from planning the trip to holding the fish and experiencing them in their native environment that really resonates with me.

 

We didn’t do a whole lot of fishing that Saturday, choosing to fish the morning at the cabin and then spend the afternoon watching football and sampling the rest of the beer we brought.  Little did we know it would be Les Miles’ last game, but I couldn’t have imagined a more fitting way for him to go out.

The fishing was still tough at the cabin, probably one of the least productive trips we’ve ever had there, but all it takes is one good fish to make a day, and lucky for me that fish crushed a woolly bugger I was swimming through a normally productive run.

It wasn’t a typical cabin trip, but we still had a blast.  It felt good to get out and hit some smaller water this time and remind myself why that was a big part of our trips in years past. I do enjoy kayak fishing, especially sightfishing redfish, but there is something about small stream wade fishing that makes it my absolute favorite type of fishing.
