Marj, Carol M and I spent a fun day this past Saturday fishing for salmon on the Vedder River. For Carol and I, the salmon won, as we had no luck in landing one of the elusive creatures. Marj, however, was more successful than we, landing one Pink on her spinning rod and the lucky lure that Randy had picked out for her. Thanks, Randy.
We met another fly fisher, Ejay, who was very helpful to we three novices, offering lots of tips on where to cast, what flies to use and even gave us some of his personally tied "dollar store" flies - not to mention offering Marj some of his catch.
While we weren't overly succesful in catching fish, we all had a wonderful day on the river. The view down river with the mist rising off the water, the mountains in the background and the multitude of other fishermen lining both sides of the river, , was beautiful. I don't beleive there is such a thing as a bad day on the water.
We hope to get out aqain soon. Dianne
