|I give you fly fishing model, Hyun Kounne my friend!|
Doesn't Hyun look just so at peace with a raging river -mind you- in the backdrop?
On this particular morning we: Eric, Hyun and I drove about an hour to the Boulder river. We were quite alone with the exception of a few campers and 2 other fellow anglers (women). What do ya know, there are more and more of us girlies out there!
We have never fished from a raft before. To Eric's horror my boots had studs. Needless to say that I was not allowed to partake in the adventurous waters experience unless I proceeded to remove my suicidal boots subito presto! In exchange for my compliance, Eric loaned me his size 11 men's river sandals. Now, I'm a size 5 womens! See the picture?? This alone brought the whole experience to a whole different and may I say challenging level. I would not call it extreme sports but not far off : ) Every single time we accosted the shore and had to walk 20 or 50 feet, that I did not break my neck was a bloody miracle!
Well, aside from looking like Bozo the clown from knees down I had the best time, really. I caught 9 fish that very day. I had never caught so many in one day before. Small and big and everything in between.
As for this weekend Hyun and I are going mouse pattern fishing... That will be a first for both of us. If I remember correctly I've only fished once during the night before. Well stay tuned as it has the potential to be a very event filled night.... or not.
