Early Morning TRAFFIC Run

Today is going to be busy, but I woke up really early and couldn't fall back asleep so I decided to take advantage of the extra time and go for a TRAFFIC run.

Just went to the Salmon Pool out back. Caught eight salmon parr and one chub. With 3.8 miles run, the total score was 118.5. (38 points for mileage + 80.5 for the fish).

It was a good way to get in a run (and some fly fishing) on a day that was going to be a rest day. Nice and cool out also, keeping the mosquitoes and deer flies to a very minimum.

I don't think a lot of people understand just how much fun small stream fishing is. You're not going to land any lunkers or even any keepers for that matter, but it presents numerous other challenges and is very enjoyable. And a 3 weight rod is smaller and easier to run with. Here are a couple of pics:
