So, I taught my friend how to fly fish on the Skagit this weekend. It was absolutely beautiful. It was hot enough that we didn't need waders, which also meant it was high. Real high. The water level raised about a foot while we were there. I was able to catch one 13 inch rainbow over two days...

West Pothole. That is where my grandkids caught their first trout. Poppi is as pleased as punch. I am not sure who was more excited though, Addison and Austin or their moms! Dew worms and pink power bait were the ticket.

This ice fishing thing could get addicting.
The woods in the winter are a beautiful place to be.
Especially if you have an ice hut with a nice little heater to duck into.
Thanks to Kevin for bringing that along and making my day all that much better.
