Trout, hatches, mountains and cold rivers, are all wonderful, but I want more rock'n'roll.
It was time to plan the next trip as soon I arrived home from Costa Rica. The first mention of petty politics on the radio or television is terribly disheartening. The first stroll through the supermarket is completely heartbreaking - back to the grind.
We're tentatively planning on the Bahamas for bonefish next February. It's not totally shooting big streamers, but it's still awfully rock'n'roll, using 6 to 8 weights for two- to 12-pound fish. From Wikipedia (the world's foremost fly fishing authority): "The bonefish, also known as 'phantom' or 'gray ghost', is probably pound for pound the strongest and fastest moving animal of any salt-water fish."
Until then, Rocky Mountain trout will have to get me by.
