    Lex,

    I can't seem to find it, was it a Scott G2?

    I like Mike, he's a good dude and a great guide. Always professional on the river. Not surprising he would look for its owner.

    Just looked at the Facebook post again and he didn't say what it was, just that if you think it might be yours to email and describe it. Good luck!

    I sure am :) although he's probably forgotten more about fishing that I will ever know. Too bad its not hereditary.

    No questions?

    What's the best hatches? What are the hatches most anglers fail to recognize? How to approach a complex hatch situation. Why do 10% of anglers catch 90% of the fish? What's the best creek in 1000 miles? How do we solve the wild steelhead situation?

    Nice fish Rick! I'd be smiling too.

    Whitey, and other guides - Is this going to be a year with bigger than average fish? Lots of variables from the last few years lead me to believe it might be.

    The spring is always a great time to catch larger trout, especially in the upper river as fish move up and into the tribs to spawn. If fish are moving, they gotta eat. Smaller fish, too young to spawn, can stay hunkered down and wait till the water warms and more food becomes available.

    The upper river has a long history of serial poachers, I'm not talking kids who don't know any better, I'm talking people that live the the upper county that believe their above the law or are grandfathered in. These f$3kers kill (I believe) 100's of large spawning age bows every year.

    The loss of those fish keep us at 100's of fish per mile, instead of 1000's. over time it adds up.

    Thank you everyone. You all have inspired me so much. I've dedicated my life to fly fishing and it has given me so much in return. At this point, my mission is to give back as much as I can.

    I followed my dream and worked hard to make it happen. YOU should do the same! Whatever that is, don't ever give up.

    2 days off is over, bout to go on bender(14 days in a row) :)
