The Sex Parakeet





























Hot damn! fish are on streamers again, at least for the 2 hours i had on the river. before i loaded my gear in the jeep i contemplated throwing streamers or throwing stones since i have been experimanting with some new stone patterns. the last set of pics of matt's streamered fish got my blood pumping and ken posted a report that stones were working on a local water so i was torn on what to do. well i will usually always choose streamers over nymphs and i did. wise choice! the weather was great......i wore no jacket, there was no wind and no ice on my guides, perfect! since i was limited on time i skipped a good chunk of river to get to where i wanted to start. i worked around a few bends and hit this little run that has produced in the past. a few casts later and i got whacked. even though the fish didn't get enough of the hook to pin itself it was sweet to have a fish hit a streamer again. 2 more holes later, stripping my fly back to me along some snags i was into a strong fish. after a good tugging match the fish came to hand. a few pics and a measurement and i was skurrying upriver as light was short. it was a short section of river i fished but i did manage a couple more fish and got nailed by another. i think it was the best streamer day i've had in that section and i only fished for 2 hours.
