Eggs, 10 years of bliss and current nothingness.

There is a whole lot of nothingness going on at the Hopper Juan Headquarters these days.  I finally got some time off of classes and guiding this past weekend.  I also celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary this weekend, so there was no fishing going on.  I had planned to fish with David Knapp of The Trout Zone, but had to bail on him when I remembered it was my anniversary.  Make sure to see what he has been up to.  I can't wait to see all the awesomeness he got around to without me.
I have started tying a new midge box and I hope to share with you some photos and patterns in the near future.  I hope to get out soon and enjoy the fall season, which seems quick to get out of here so winter can take it's place.  Fall is short enough as it is.  It doesn't need help moving along.
Pictured below is a photo from two fall's ago.  It was on the Animas River in Durango, CO.  It's one of my favorite pictures to show why I always carry egg patterns with me.

Needless to say, this pattern worked great.


  1. Juan enjoy the brief break. You know it never lasts too long. David is a nice guy and I can't wait to meet him.

  2. Juan, while I wish we could have got together, its a good thing you remembered the anniversary!! Not a good thing to forget! We'll make it happen another time for sure...

  3. Take it from an Ol' Geezer, them there anniversaries are valuable things to keep in mind, Juan! My congratulatis on your 10th. Look forward to seeing your Midge Box.

  4. Happy 10th Juan. Dave will be a good fishing partner once you get time to fish together.

  5. Congratulations on your anniversary!! It is a good thing that you didn't forget. My wedding ring is inscribed with a message and the date of our wedding. I just have to keep my weight down so I can get it off every summer to remind me.

    I am looking forward to your midge box. Any new surprises?
