Last call for the mountain river.

As the seasons last day is coming closer to this river, it was time for this years last trip. This time of year you can be lucky with some good hatches or it would not happen at all. Loaded with a couple of cane rods and some warm clothes I head of for the mountains.    

This trip I felt lucky, some insects  where hatching out on the river.
Mostly midges and this lovely mayfly.

It was time for one of my favourite flies the CDC comparadun.

The first fish a nice brown on a size 20 midge pattern.

After a start like that it was time for a short lunch break in the sun. 

This is a nice stretch on the river holding some really nice trout.

And the trout were really playing to day, this one gave the cane rod a hard and god fight.

After a day like this the trip home would be with a smile on my face.
I'm already dreaming of next year.
