Floating Down the Tully

I had the pleasure of rowing Denis and Bob down the Tully yesterday. Waking up and going outside before sun up was a chill reminder that winter is right around the corner. When I went down to hook the boat up everything that had water on it was frozen; a sure sign to pack the gloves into the gear bag.  

The water levels were up a bit and with fish rising sporadically, nymphing was the way to go. After only 10 minutes Denis had the 1st fish in the net. The fishing was pretty steady all day, despite the air temps never getting above 40. Just before rowing into Rebers Bridge, we parked the boat on the side of the stream for sandwiches and some hot coffee to warm us up from the inside out.

This was a nice warmup for our up and coming Steelhead Trip on the Salmon River.

Here are a few pictures from the trip. Enjoy
