What a nice day today is! I hopped on the bike around noon, with fishing gear in pack. Went down to where we had stopped with mom and dad two years ago, on bear lake. Really breezy, and there was someone sitting where i wanted to fish from, so went to other side. That was a hike with the bike. Fishing was tough, had only one lookie. But was able to take a few nice pics, i hope. I had forgotten to prep my 5wt line, so i had to use the 4wt on a 5wt rod, in the wind. Uggh. I got frustrated with my casting. I think i am going to take some lessons on proper casting, as well as how to nymph and wet fly fish. Can’t always dry fly. I wet waded and man that water was cold cold.
Back to camp around 2:30. The bike sucks, no clips, and when i slip off the pedal the damn thing cmes around and smacks the back of my heel. Hurts. Ate a second lunch. I think the mountains enhance the taste of everything. Then i took the little path behind the site here, made sure i had bear spray. The path looked like it might go down to the water, but it didn’t. It did go along the ridge, the water was wayyyyyy down there. But man, what views. Really nice, and i hope what i saw came into my camera. Took my time coming back up, still not acclimted to the altitude. And out of shape. What else is new?
