We met at 0900 at Cat Creek Campground and once wadered up, fished the pool below the pool below the bridge. That's always the first stop o any fishing trip here. Barbara fished an Irresistible Adams and I fished the Paralyzer. We both had hits, but none that would stay on the hook.
After a while we moved upstream where Juan and I fished on the 19th. Again, we had hits, but nothing would stick. Note to self, put some glue on the hook. Just kidding.
Somewhere up the creek I managed to bring this one to hand after doing a short distance release (at my toes actually) of a small brown.

We fished maybe 3/4 of a mile and by then I started getting to the point where I was beginning to stumble when I walked. Years ago I had a small stroke and the more tired I get the easier I stumble, so when I get to that point it's time for me to call it quits.
Barbara continued to fish after I left and I'm sure she brought more to hand. There is no doubt in my mine that she knows what she's doing when she has a fly rod in her hand whether it's a regular fly rod or a Tenkara rod.
On the way back to the truck I took the following two pictures.

Till next time.
