Birthday Girl

Yesterday was my Moms birthday. For Mother's day I had given her a gift certificate to fish for a day. She brought her good friend Anne, who had never fly fished. We put in and ran up river to one of my favorite little gems on the river. It was a beautiful boat ride in the fog. We had the river to ourselves. No other boats! Mom got into them pretty quick and punished them. She brought in several gorgeous browns. Once I got Anne dialed in, she starting catching quite a few fish too! We took a great lunch break and watched the geese squabble. After lunch, we started working our way back to the ramp catching some nice fish in the rising water as we drifted. It was really cool getting to take my mom fishing on her birthday. I think she and Anne will remember it forever!
