I finally had the chance to roll north, way north, to visit the big lake in Nevada, courtesy of Avergae Joe. Where else can you experience all 4 Seasons within 5 minutes, stunning beauty, and some of the biggest trout in the west? Plus, AJ mentioned it would be a food fest.



Joe's crew been camping up there for 9 years now. You're an 'outsider' for all of 30 seconds with these guys and they quickly welcomed me and got me squared away on techniques for the lake. You had guys ranging from trout bums living on an endowment fund to a Chief of Police. I personally enjoyed throwing back beer and flies with a Techno House DJ. In other words, chasing fish made for brothers.



Conditions were difficult (though probably normal for up there), with some serious wind and rain. I watched the guy I was fishing with hook up, get knocked off his ladder by a big swell, and come up with the rod in hand, still fighting the fish.



Food was amazing, ranging from smoked ribs to yellowtail, to sausage wrapped in bacon, to BBQ'd corned beef and smoked potatoes. I'll need a week or more for detox, especially with the beer and scotch thrown on top.



Enough said. Here's random pics of the weekend.... Couple are from AJ.

Gunstocks as firewood? Now, that's legit...

Yeah, facial breach of protocol. But, it was my 1st Lahontan Cutt and my mug just makes the fish all the sexier in comparison..

The fish Chris went snorkeling for- possibly the finest finesse I've ever seen. Celebrated with whiskey.

Two cops on the same trip? Scary shit, man. Personally I've always wanted to be a trout bum living on an endowment fund - my wife needs to start working harder. Good stuff man, sorry I couldn't join you - one or two more days would have made the difference. C'est la vie. :cool

Really bummed I missed it this year that trip is as good as it gets and the food is off the charts, as well as the company.

Glad you made it up for it, hopefully we can meet there next year as I would really like to make that trip again.

Nice shots and fish.

I think that's fixin' to change.

Goodbye to another one
