Why the name Mystic Waters Fly Fishing? I think these images from recent days will portray my vision of the Mystic Waters.
31 degrees Mystic Waters Fly Fishing
60 degrees and sunshine.
Some days it rains. Some days it pours. Some days are hot. Some days are cold and misty and mystical.
There are no bad days on the Mystic Waters….Fly Fishing.
So I’m washing my boat the other day and I get done and hear this crunch crunch sound. It sounds like Stacy’s dog Kona working on a stick, but he’s miles away. I turn around and the tray of chicken I’d set out on the corner of the grill is gone. I look a little further and discover the sound of the crunching. This chicken thief spoiled our barbecue. He was not at all remorseful, until I sent him up a tree and gave him a shot of pepper spray. It was either that, or he’d likely be sitting on my couch the next night after emptying the fridge.
Pike Spey! How cool is this…
Pike on the swing
“Sage 9136-4 + intruder pattern = big pike on the swing” That was the message I got from Jeremy along with a couple glory shots. Jeremy has gotten hooked on 2-hand rods of late. I set him up with a 6119 Method this spring. The rod has already accounted for a bunch of steelhead, been broken, been repaired and taken small mouth bass and I’m sure some other stuff. Jeremy just got the 9136-4 One for a planned big water steelhead trip this fall after he joins us in Alaska. He’s obviously been jonesing to cast it and get pulled on it and apparently he has. I’m not going to tell you where this happened, because I imagine Jeremy will be back. 2-hand rods are not just for salmon and steelhead. Here is more proof. Pike Spey. Pretty awesome!
Still catching sockeye salmon in the Kenai River. Got a million of them out there.
