Posts Tagged ‘trips’

Since I’m currently rotting away in Spanish Fork like an old mayonnaise sandwich in the Utah sun, and haven’t jumped a fire in half a fort night.  I don’t have much to post about.  I’ve decided to do some posting anyway- on some events that happened in the past.  That way I can keep throwing posts up on a regular basis.  Soooo… Fly fishing trip is the event for the day.

Chris and I made a last minute trip to his “super secret” fishing spot to which he brings NO ONE!  I was really excited and honored to be let in on his coveted fishing area but once we got there (about 5 hours from Boise), I found out that despite it’s extreme remoteness it was in fact one of my favorite places too since it was near where I grew up!  So we both had great past memories of the place, which made it that much more amazing.  Getting to the fish meant driving the last hour on a dirt road that made a Bolivian Jeep trail look like a freeway- then a four mile hike to top it off.  We showed up to camp in the dark and celebrated with a few pulls of whiskey then pitched our tents and hit the hay, looking to get up at first light.

The next two days were full of amazing weather and pretty good fishing.  We hooked several nice steelhead and got some good sunburns- Perfect weekend!
