First Fishing Trip of 2012

This morning Karel Lansky of Tenkaraonthefly.net and I went up the South Platte outside of Deckers, CO. It was a bit cold to start but man what a gorgeous day to be able to play on the water.

The water was a little slushy until we got above Deckers, but that is what you get for the first month of the new year. This was my first day on the South Platte in a few years and I had forgotten how much fun it can be. Anyway, the fishing was slow for both Karel and I but at least we were out.


There were plenty of fisherman at all the pullouts although not many reports of to much in the way of caught fish. I can safely say Karel and I were the only Tenkara fisherman on the South Platte today and I definitely enjoyed it. I am looking forward to going back soon or at least when it is warmer and the fish want to feed instead of having to nail them on the nose and then still get ignored.

All in all, a great day and hopefully many more to come.
So let me thank Karel and sign off for now.
