We got to the top of the chair and had a small hike up to the lake. Some summer hikers wanted to touch TDT's spikes...and practically get his autograph. At the lake a fly fisherman was already trying to trick some Tigers but had no success. Apon asking him what flies he tried, he said "random flies". Hummm never heard of a random pattern before.
So we tried our hand and getting some Tiger action. TDT was the 1st to get some to hit the dry flies, but could not get a hook up. Then a Tiger took his copper john on the dropper.
Then after I switched to a Zebra Midge I got my 1st fish.
After a few more casts I got into a BIG Tiger Trout. After a 15min fight I got him in.
Before we knew it the action died off for me, but TDT was just nailing Tiger after Tiger on his crawdad imitation flies.
There was a nice sequence of a Tiger who did not want to pose for a photo op.
Then when all hope was lost I got 1 last Tiger Trout...which was the biggest of the day. His belly was HUGE, I could not even get my hands around him!
Soon after it was getting dark so we started the hike back down to the car. With 4 miles ahead of us it was gonna be a long walk.
At the Sun Lodge we took a much needed break.
And before we knew it we had plenty of steeps and miles behind us.
Back at the car the sunset was started up above the "Orange Bubble Express". I guess one could call it a "Orange Bubble Sunset".
"Think like a fish.....no matter how crazy it gets!"
