Well, it was a boring day after school.. very nice,sunny and warm. Then i get a call that a friend is going to a job interveiw and wanted to know if i would acompany him. I said hell yes! knowing the I-5 bridge was on the way there i grabbed a fly rod ,my box and we headed out. After the interveiw we stopped and ate for a few minutes and talked. Then i got my rod out, scouted a bit of river and tied on a dry because the stoneflies were hatching. The first cast was horrible and sloppy and my dead drift wasn't even dead. Second cast was so smooth and i placed it right in the perfect spot. I watched the fly get carried by the current forever, until it hit a shadow and BAM! not a steelhead as i was looking for, but a feisty little cutthroat going nuts with my size 12 royal stimlator in it's mouth. after that fish i had to nymph because i had no fly floatant. I got one bite on a rubber legged bead head prince nymph and called it a day. a good one at that.
