So we are almost into fall and I haven’t made many posts so… I figure I would let a few pics do the talking… Long time client Jack Ingram and I stopped at Hot creek on our way to Crowley, spotted this monster, stuck it on a dry fly, then continued down to the lake…. I know, it’s tough.
Check out this 25 incher Sean got on the Owens!!
Here is Jack once we made it to the lake…. Ya, that day sucked

Sometimes Jack likes to give them a hug if there over 22 inches!

Good client and friend Chris Hirata with a Bridgeport Res. chunk. Bastard has a lot of big fish on this post.
Chris and I with a 5 pound Crowley pig!!!
Father and son’s first day fly fishing and dad stuck this 22 incher. His son Nathaniel ripped some lip too!
Another Crowley silver bullet.
Nathaniel with his first fish on a fly!!

Richard and I fished Bridgeport Res. and it was the best day I have ever had on Bridgeport. We guessed 80-100 fish between the two of us. At one point, Richard was kicking my a$$ and stuck 12 over 18 inches!!
One 23 incher for the ladyChris on Alpers Owens River Ranch

AAAHH… and now we have Luc. I don’t know what else to say. This guy has become a legend. I have netted more fish over 20 inches for this guy this year than I have the whole time I’ve been guiding (Check older post)… well maybe
Luc’s son Patrick came up for a few days and whacked ’em on the lake and on the Alpers Ranch.

Yup, Richard again.
I think this might be the smallest fish I’ve photographed with that funny looking guy.
Chris on Alpers. Another toad.
Patrick’s first day of fly fishing and he stuck multiple lunkers like this one!!!
I want to say thanks to everyone I had the pleasure of fishing with, and all of the relationships that have been built. This summer has been a whirl wind for me being this busy, and for those of you who don’t know, I’m also getting married on the 29th of this month. I will be gone until late October. I will then be working for Sac River Outfitters guiding Steelhead on the Trinity River in Northern California until Feb. I strongly urge you to come up and fish for these reel singing chromies!!!
