Well, I had a couple of objectives today - primary, to get a Mumbles-induced skunking off. I am beginning to think that it is true, however, I have personally seem him catch fish. Perhaps it was transferred in someway, because ever since that trip in mid-January - well, you get the picture. Secondarily, I intended to get a new Brodin Guide net that I got as a recent birthday gift, fishy. Third, I was testing out some new patterns, for, uh - fishability.

Given those parameters, I did achieve all three objectives. The river was low, cold, clear, and looked very fishy. It is my opinion that the lower canyon, in the winter, is less productive than the upper river. However, given my experience after Docstash departed from Ringer (I walked up towards the wall on the left, and using a olive streamer on a fast sink tip, hooked two nice fish and fished until it was dark) I can with confidence say that there are nice fish right now in the deep, slow pools at the mouth of the canyon, if that's what we can agree on as the nomenclature for that area.

Long, dull story short - Docstash was great company, a pleasure to fish with, a fine gentleman, and good on the sticks. I did not fish very well today. But, I achieved all of my objectives for the day and spent a great day on the river with a new friend. I'd say without the fish, it was a raving success.

Thank you Docstash for your time today, it was a pleasure indeed. Mumbles, the skunk is back on you. :)
