A Year in Pictures, Jan and Feb Edition

To me, a year is defined not by what you acquire but by the experiences you have.

Screw the new cars, jet skis, mega houses and other, give me a trip I can remember for the rest of my life and I call that a win.

So with that, over the next 6 days, we will be taking a look back at the pictures that defined our year here at Chucking Line and Chasing Tail.

Today, I offer my favorites from January and February 2010


 The 2009 summer run of Steelhead kept paying off for us on the  Grande Ronde.

Normally, water temps preclude us from swinging up a lot of fish.  With a non existent winter and higher than normal water temps, fish kept taking our swinging bugs.

As the month progressed, I was introduced to swinging the big river in the dead of winter.  I love it


Playing a little hooky from work gave us this beautiful sight and cooperative fish at the bottom

Our annual night of fly fishing geekdom came to town, and we were all impressed

Winter flows on the GR stayed in shape and we were given gift of floating the canyon many times.  OMR of course rocked a few fish to sleep, as exemplified here.

Up tomorrow...March and April
