Japn has it all Rico, the snow & the fish holly smokes D, all these huge ones in 30 mins...That's unbelievable. I think the fish must have suicidal tendencies over there, or they've got the hots for you!

anyone got any beta on fishing in the PNW? i'm pretty much a rookie at fly fishing, and i just moved to seattle a couple months ago, so i barely know the area at all. but my dad is coming out for a visit from vermont, and he's a pretty seasoned fly fisher, so i'd like to take him out somewhere cool. i assume most of the western rivers are still pretty high right now... are the eastern ones looking better? thanks for any advice!

I hiked into a pretty remote canyon last Saturday. Tiny creek, and small but beautiful stream bred rainbows. This fish was alone in this pool. I managed to sneak up without spooking him. He proceeded to reject 5 patterns in 45 minutes before I landed him with a tiny pheasant tail.
Every fish was brightly colored, probably the most beautiful rainbows I've seen anywhere.
And one more from a great day
