The outdoors revitalize my being no matter the activity and even if only for a moment.
Being outdoors reminds me of what is most important; therefore, I long most days to be in the great outdoors.

California visits Utah...

JD catching a whitefish while nymphing.

A decent brown from the Blacksmith.

A nice Cuthroat from the Blacksmith.  Originally hooked in the mouth but flopping around in the net sent the nymph flying.  Thanks to my buddy Gilbert for tying me up some nice flies.

Another Cuthroat.  JD in the background.       

My buddy of 23 years,  John-David has moved back to Utah!  I took his brother, Robert and his friend, Dave fishing Friday evening of 2 weeks ago on the Logan River.  We found a really good pool below 2nd dam that was holding all of the fish due to low flows.  It was a good way to get Robert a good feel of what it is like to nymph.  We then headed way up stream, but didn't have much luck. 

The next day, Saturday we started off at Newton for Tiger Muskies.  The water was still low, but up 4 ft from the previous couple of weeks.  Robert had 2 followers and I saw a tiger muskie chase about a 16 inch bass up onto the shore!  We then headed to Mantua- the water was murky and the wind was incessant.  We soon bailed and headed for the Blacksmith Fork.  Above was our luck.  I think I caught about 7, JD 3, Dave 3 and Robert 0.  Robert did catch several the day before on the Logan though.

That looks like fun. Next time I come out we're going fly fishing.
