Change in Plans

I had planned on getting some fishing in.  The weather kind of changed that.  I can fish in the snow but not when it's windy.  I did get out with the kids though. 
My mother was visiting the mountains and I really wanted her to catch a trout with a fly rod.  Yesterday we hit a local trout stream that usually gets hammered by locals and tourists.  To my surprise the park was uncrowded most likey due to the weather.  By the time we arrived it had warmed up consirably.  The wind had stopped and there was no snow on the ground.  I showed my mother the basics of nymphing and sure enough in and hour she had caught 3 fish.  Not bad for her first time.   I was almost skunked but hooked a trout on my last cast.  It was a great weekend.


  1. Wonderful! I remember the post a few months ago about you fishing with your mother...I think you're getting her hooked. Nymphing now! :) Regardless of fishing or no, looks like a great weekend.

  2. Oh man I just got the shivers. No snow here just yet. Looks like the kids enjoyed the snow. Looks like you taught your mom well with the fly rod. Tight Lines.

  3. All I can say is NOOOOOOOOOoooooo...... I am not looking forward to that white stuff. As long as it says up north ok but when it starts creeping down south.... Great post again Kev

  4. E.m.b, She is totally hooked and already out fishing me.

    Trout, it is unusual to get snow this early. I hope this isn't a precursor of things to come.

    AYOTF, I never look forward to the cold weather. Give me the mild days of spring any day.
