Took Wednesday off to go fishing with a friend at an alpine that has recently become a favorite of mine. This is probably the earliest I have ever gone trout fishing and I am sure glad I did. The weather wasn't the greatest, but it was good enough to where it wasn't a factor in my comfort. Many fish were caught and they all fought well. Even caught my first fish on a boobie fly and I got to christen my Orvis H3D 6 wt. It was a fun rod to fish with. It also helped that there was no wind. It may not always be great for fishing, but I do enjoy seeing a lake surface that is as smooth as glass. All in all, it turned out to be a great day.
