Thought today would be a good day to introduce the pup to fly fishing. A favorite small stream seemed like the best place to ease into things. In the interest of time (an 8 week old pup can only do so much) I decided to head straight to a known hole.
After checking out the water, Ruby James decided to hunker down and stay warm during some snow showers. This gave her a front row seat, although I'm not sure how interested she was.
I don't know if I could've hooked a prettier trout to show the pup. The colors on this fish were fantastic and the size wasn't bad either (it's great when small waters surprise you!)
Ruby James' first trout encounter. She didn't seem to care much which is good for fish and fisherman.
Beautiful spots up close and personal. (should make for a cool painting this winter)
While not native to the Rockies, I do have a soft spot for the Brookie; especially when their showing off their spawning colors.
Snow showers moving through the valley signify an end to the summer/ nice fall weather.
