    prospecting new tribs the last couple weeks with great results. last week, a mediocre cast into this:

    produced this:

    which i was quite happy with, but it came on the edges and i knew i could do better. saturday i took a little more time to beat the obstacles not shown in the foreground of the first shot, set up for a cast under the logs and into the dark water at the back of the hole, which produced this:

    low light, bad pic, but not a bad fish for a secondary tributary up in the mountains. went straight for the heavy water and fought like hell on the 2wt. caught a bunch of others but this was the best one. another great night out there.

    I kind of miss those mountain streams where you go and have a chance of busting your knees at almost every turn..

    Here in Montana where I fish is all kind of the flat water. We're up high as most skinny water is at 6000' or more. But there are no big trees and blow downs to worry about. All the fish here seem to hide under the river banks.
