Last creek day of the season! Well, I might run up again for a mountain fix, but it was pretty chilly and it seems like we’re in store for an early winter. I went up with my buddy Mark Garcia and his friend Jonathan from NC. Jonathan hasn’t done much fly fishing so I sent Mark off on his own and Jonathan and I stuck together and tromped around. Like so many of the people I get to meet and fish with, Jonathan was really cool and we hit it off. Talking, telling stories and laughing, all while walking up a beautiful mountain creek chasing trout is one of the things that makes my job so enjoyable. We ended up catching some fish, having a great time together, eating a delicious lunch from my favorite bakery, and generally just had a special day in the mountains.
