Quick trip with Jack.

Jackson and I made a quick run to the Ark yesterday.  It was fun to get out.  We only had a couple of hours to fish and he spent most of it playing, but he did fish some.  It was a great day as it was his last day being 8 years old.  Today, Sunday, is his 9th Birthday.  Happy Birthday Jack!  
There were only a few BWOs out today and I managed a few on dries.  The rest came on RS2s. 

Jackson only made a few cast and came up with this guy. 
The real deal.
A fake. 
Pretty realistic huh? 

See that foam?  A nice fish was rising to BWOs.  Yea, I caught him.  


  1. Wow, great photos and flies Juan. Happy birthday Jack! Oh to be 9 again.

  2. Looks like a fun guys' trip out- happy birthday Jack! Mike & will

  3. First, tell Jack Happy Birthday! Second it looks like you did some dredging! Those comparison photos of the stones along with the nymph patterns are great! More folks should stick their noses under the rocks more often. After all these years I still find myself amazed at the wealth of knowledge we, more often than not, just wade over.
    Again tell the young man Happy Birthday from all us old folks who would love to be nine again!

  4. Looks like a fun trip! Great pictures!

  5. It looks like Jack had a great birthday. I think Dad did as well. Enjoy your kids every day. They grow up so fast that you don't know where the time has gone. Jerry
