We did a better job than usual of leaving early and, as a result, were the first to arrive at "our spot". Along the way, we saw a good sized herd of elk from the road.
Zooming in a bit, we can see the bulls:
Getting us rigged up, I got Sonia's ready first and she made the first cast of the day. As I was tying on my hook, she had already gotten a take and line was jumping from her reel, bale open. She timed her hookset well and I started rolling in HD:
What a pig! A great catch for Mrs. LOAH, her biggest fish to date.
As awesome as that fish was, it was the only noteworthy catch of the day. A small tiger trout finally saved me from a skunk, but I had to put a lot of work in before that happened.
Despite the slow fishing, it was a treat to cast again, the weather was pretty nice (minus the wind), and my wife caught a new personal record. It was a great day for all of us.
Happy Fishing, Humans.
