Gary, Steve, chris, all great dudes to hang out with. Good trip, good times had, good fish. Thanks for helping make it a memorable post guiding Vaca! 50/50 on fresh to stale but some Gooood players
Thanks to the folks at GBL, I'll steal this from Steve, we never heard the word "no" and if anyone is looking for a place to stay or planning a trip I'd call and talk to Pete.
still quite a bit of snow on the ground when we got there:
started it off on a good foot with a nice hen:
chris followed suit with another:
the hike up river:
About to get completely and utterly owned by a fish into the wood:
a hot tide fish that came back down stream to hit... pretty F'n cool to see!
Give a guy a ride to the river and see what he does 2nd cast calling his spot:
a few good bucks:
chris's fish of the trip:
and mine; Pretty stoked on this one; He was sitting in a small pocket between two lof Jags that I somehow got a cast into and he buried it, then continued to chug upstream like nothing was happening. then when he realized shifted into 5th and shot down past the logs into some heavy water and of corse took me way down below my camera man so the only shot I got was him next to the rod but he was a solid spunky 37"er that kicked my [Bleeeeep!] and I just happened to get lucky and survive:
again thanks to all involved!
