Trout Lake Musings And A New Book To Read
Well, that is where things went astray and I never did get to organize my fly tying bench. Cop out? Sounds like it too me. Anyway, I looked at the cover of Fly Fisherman one more time and admired the the beautiful BC Dean River Steelhead on the cover. Actually, noticed the beautiful Andrea Charlton holding this beautiful fish for the "Dream Shot".
After coming out of my trance after a minute or two, I opened the back cover of the magazine to read the featured "Seasonable Angler" It quickly caught my eye. It was titled, Trout Lake. Could it be the Trout Lake I am thinking of? That beautiful small lake nestled near a major highway in Yellowstone Park. The one with the short, but better be in good condition, hike uphill for a short period before you descend down into the lake. The one I had fished myself. The one I knew had big fish in it. Ones that I tried to fool, but, came away empty handed. Yup, it was the one.
This article, as it turns out, was an excerpt from the book Troutsmith by Kevin Searock.
Hope you enjoy.
