The truth be told the last couple of days have been pretty cold, wet and windy... I didn't even take my camera out for fear of toasting it. But, the storm broke last night, and the morning was spectacular.

We came over the ridge and found fresh snow on the volcano from the last two days' storms.

I was set to fish with my buddy, Charlie, so we dropped off the other guide and fisherman at good water...

Charlie and I walked up river, and I got him in a run before crossing over to scout for fish... bingo.

It was time for me to fish... but I'd given all the good water to my friends. All that was left was really skinny stuff.

But, I got lucky... even in the shit-hole I was fishing, and hooked up with this guy.

He'd taken the fly with slow deliberation, so I wasn't surprised to find he'd taken it deep.

The fly came out easily, and the big guy had one last portrait in him before he swam away.
