I fished for most of the day. I hit my favorite spot up high and got into a bit of snow. Well worth it though. I love those wild cutts and brookies. Stopped for a bit and just watched the brookies get their spawn on. One of the coolest things to witness in nature. They are so beautiful this time of year. On my way home and a little bit lower in elevation I stopped and caught a few browns, nothing to big.

Tied my fly on, got the line in the air, and on that final backcast "SNAP" I caught a tree and snapped my repaired rod. I was bummed cause I hadn't brought another rod. I thought well I might as well try to fish the rod I had just shortened. I broke the extra 3 inches off to get to the last snake guide. It took a few casts to get the hang of the new style. I was glad to see that I could still cast a pretty good distance. I caught this nice brown with a light blue-wing olive and a short rod.

Really Really fun outing last week. My buddy Cort and I were able to get out and into the mountains. We hiked in 3 or so miles and did some fishin and campin. Beautiful leaves were everywhere. Cort caught the nicest rainbow I have ever seen come out of a stream of that size, he's like a leprechaun. Good times.
