Yes it was a great day up there as far as the fishing goes. But I realized today that I had lost a whole bunch of flies that I had tied over the past 50 years or so on our way back down the mountain. They were in a black leather bag and somehow blew out of my boat. So the wife and I drove back up there today to see if we might get lucky and find them along the road somewhere. No such luck. Did talk to a wonderful fellow fly fisher (Paul) who said he saw something black in the middle of the road near the summit, but never bothered to investigate. Someone else must have found the flies at a later time. Hopefully someone will get in touch with the Longview Daily News Paper. You win some and you loose some. That's the way things are.
Terry; Glad you had some good fishing for part of your trip up there in September. It was really flat up there this evening looking out from the launch area. Saw a few fish feeding on Cadis's, but mostly things were pretty still. Sometime I'm going to try night fly fishing up there. Never done that yet.
Woodcanoeguy: Hey thanks. Great idea. I'll give them a call on Monday.
I think I might head over east if the snow doesn't get too deep on the passes sometime in November to do a little fly fishing on a lake over there. The wife and I are involved with helping some friends move to Utah pretty soon so I can't do anything till we get back. Hopefully it will work out. Hope you can make it back up to Coldwater this year.
