We met up Friday at Raley's in Jackson and headed out to New Melones to soak some Power Bait. Made a quick stop at Starbuck's in Angels Camp for coffee and coffeecake and hit the lake just before 9:00am.
Set up our camping chairs in my usual spot and put out four rods. Juan got the first fish and it only got better from there. I was a little concerned because there were a LOT of people out there, but it didn't seem to make any difference.

While we were sitting there Charlie Moore (Secretary/Membership of the Amador Fly Fishers Club, you'll note on the left side of the page the link to the club) wandered by.
Now as fly fishermen go, Charlie is good, really good. Remember last Monday I tried to use my fly rod and couldn't get the fly more than about ten feet out, Charlie was putting the fly about thirty feet out and since he was getting it out so far, caught at least three while he was next to us.
Drop in on Juan's blog (link above) when he gets his post done. Maybe he'll say something nice about how good a guide I was. Always good to fish with someone who knows what he's doing.
Come back tomorrow and see what 4th crossing is all about.
