    After my trip to Picnic Point this morning I still had some fishing left in me. I ventured out to Lost Lake, It's about 10 minutes from my house and yet I have never fished there before, until today. There were a handfull of others there when I rolled in around 1. Most of them were fly fishers which was nice to see. It was pretty slow, got a nibble on a wooley, nada on the chiros and just when I was going to call it a day it got real hot. I landed three within 15 minutes. All were about 8 to 10 inches in size, real bright. I figured that was a good success so I called it a day. I'm going to have to give this lake some more quality time.

    If thats the lost lake by echo lake I fish that lake almost every week. I love that its so small and generally very quiet. I get the lake to myself most of the time. There are a few monsters in there, I caught a 21+ incher in there on Thursday.

    Yup. thats the one. It's real close to my place. I have just always ventured out to the more infamous lakes. I have overlooked my own backyard. No more of that, Lost will be my go to lake!

    Well we'll have to meet up there sometime. I'm usually there on Thursdays afternoon to early evening and sometimes on Fridays. Hit me up if you're ever going out on those days. FYI my new favorite fly for that lake is the water boatman.

    Sure thing Casey, I drive right by it on my way home from work. If I get off early enough I will try to stop by and cast a few with you. I'll have a beer for you if you have a boatman for me. :beer2:

    Warm and the rivers are a nice brown shade. I've had a cold for a week so I don't go out anyplace. But there is a nice little creek close by that will get my attention when ever this stupid cold has run it's course.

    Is that a 3 or 4 wt creek? That's one of the nice things about fly fishing: There's always a right rod for whatever water you like to fish. Keep it fun, Jim!

    Tight Lines!

    Saw a pretty big frog in there today.. he surfaced and just hung there. Slowly drifting by.. staring at me. Kinda freaked me out!! Stayed a little later than I should have and almost hooked a bat. Twice.. if I was younger and a LITTLE bit more of an asshole.. hahaha! Caught a largemouth on tuesday completely by accident (gear chuckin) so big I could have put my fist in his mouth, 5 pounder easy. Ok so maybe it was bigger in my mind haha you know how it goes.
    Missed all my strikes today. One of em could have been that damn frog! :eek:
    Sorry about the crappy pictures, cell phone.. I'm a size 12 wide..wish I had taken a good pic of his belly, it was as thick as my fat calves (again, in my mind). Gonna get him on a fly next week!
    Oh and I'm the fat guy with the outrageous hair who no doubt looks like a complete tool.. feel free to show me a thing or two (please!).
