Still not sure, but there sure were some awful things written about him in the snow. Reminded me of a truck stop bathroom.

I want to say thanks to all who made it a great trip and weekend of fishing, eating and a gathering for me. Thanks to all who offered up advice on how to fish the Juan. Although I was blanked on Sat and only caught 2 on Sun, it was good advice that enabled me nab 2 and several other escapees that day. I am am glad Josh was able to re-catch the one he released (with his net 10 yards down from where he released it! :ROFL: is that an illegal re-catch? :ROFL::ROFL: ) as he thought I had gotten 2 pictures with his camera but after he checked his camera no pictures. So after he re-caught it I had to re-take them making sure I heard the camer beep. :)

I did manage to get a picture of one of the ones I caught although too much light.

I only got to fish Saturday, and as you may have heard it wasn't super easy fishing for those of us wading upstream, but I did manage a couple fish, one of which was pretty good.

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the pot luck. That was freaking awesome. Good to see you guys too. Hopefully I'll be able to get down to fish with y'all more often.

This was my best fish of the trip. Mr. Smith posted it in one of the other threads, but I wanted to keep this one going.

I reckon I should post some pics. Tonight perhaps...

Good Company
Well, I think that ASU has great photos really highlight some very good fish. Great photos, great fish! And several others are all too modest about what great fish they caught. I am proud to have one or two photos to contribute...

On Saturday, Mike & Mike, guided by Chip, drift the Juan and catch our share...Mike must have gotten two or three before Mike got his first, a small rainbow, but then he (Mike) landed a nice on, too. From there it was back and forth. Mike, then Mike. Then Mike again. Then Mike, Mike, and Mike...and Mike again!

Mike strikes first at the Texas Hole...

And then again!

This guy is pounding them!

Mike's very first San Juan rainbow!

it's all downhill from here.

And I can't speak for Mike, but although I know mine aren't the biggest or the best, they are my first, so I just wanted to show them to everybody! Great trip, great company, and thank you all for including me.

Mike & Mike Roooooock the Juan!!!

Did you recognize the handwriting?

Mike...great photos! Thanks for sharing. I see you guys got some browns. Three of us from Northern Arizona Flycasters were there the weekend before you and two of us also caught browns. You guys had the warmer weather.

So Mike, who did you fish with? and did Mike catch any fish?;) Those are some nice bows and very pretty browns. Lots of browns now in the lower river! Don't have to stock them badboys! Looks like a great trip and Chip is awesome! Thanks M&M
