I know, that’s all I do … post pix of fish I catch. But, aside from sitting in the office all day, waiting for the phone to ring, that’s all I do. I mean go fishing after work. Practically every day. Somewhere around 6 PM (now that the days are so long), I hop in the car and drive about 15 minutes to Orilla Verde, my favorite place. The best dry fly action is just before it gets too dark, and I’ve been getting back to the house around 8:45 PM. Then it’s dinner, an episode of Wallander (our late favorite, which is almost over!!) and bed. Seen in the corner of this photo is my new TFO Mangrove series 6 wt. A good cheap rod. This fish took an EH Caddis from a fast shallow riffle (the only fly I’ve been using lately). A few days back, the fish were rising with abandon, which was the first time I’ve encountered that this season, and I hooked over a dozen in 2 hours. Seeing fish rising all over the place confirms what one doubts when the fish have lockjaw – that there’s any fish in the river. I’ll bet there’s a fish in every square yard of suitable water, or more. That’s the Rio!
Well, I wasn’t telling the whole truth above. I’ve also been working on the second edition of my book, while waiting for the phone to ring. This is an iBook (Apple version of eBook) and is much expanded over the first edition. Over 900 photos, a short video by Britt Runyon, 355 pages, interactive features and cheap. I’ll probably sell it at $5.99. Stay tuned … I’m almost there!
