|Bucket list gar|
I was pleasantly surprised when another guide gave me the first day of a two day trip. This never happens because no one wants to get their head kicked in by an Iverson. I lost a ton of my gin clear water due to the gale blow yesterday. Still the fish were everywhere and looking to eat. The formula for finding fish is simple. Kill the engine and start polling. I do not know the outcome of the other guides second day trip but he had better be at the top of his game.
The winds finally laid down to a pleasant breeze. Polling was easy and the reds did not disappoint. The water has cleared a bit making the fish stand out against the dark grassy bottom. My client struggled at first but eventually started presenting the fly properly. His confidence in me grew exponentially as each flat held multiple golden eaters. I know fishing is not supposed to be this easy and will not last forever. I truly savor these days.
