A Day Off Spent On The River

Just capping off a non guide day.  Spent last night camping with my two sons and had a magnificent time.  Lots of sugar and good campfire talk.  Witnessed a prolific spruce moth flight.  While technically these bugs are not water born and do not emerge like other aquatic insects in a trout's diet, they do spend time on and near the water and are when available after mid-morning often devoured by hungry trout.  Small rainbows on the North Fork of the Big Wood took advantage of these large bugs around 9 AM.  Fish sat in corners and nooks and spots I would never have thought there would be fish.  I have plenty of pics to post over the next few days...
