One Fish, Two Fish

I just returned from a flyfishing trip. We fished the Florita (Florida) River and had good luck. The information all said that the only public access required bushwhacking to get to the river, but it wasn't as bad as some places I have been. A pretty mountain river but seems no one ever fishes it as we couldn't find any information about it in any of the fly shops. Some big fish are there if you are willing to hike for them.

We also fished the Animas, a big river but I did catch the first fish out of our group and it was 17 inches. The biggest fish I have ever caught...that is until we fished the Piedra and I got a fish that was around 18 inches. It was a battle. The fish jumped out of the water three times doing cartwheels and somersaults. I was worn out and the fish was worn out but we both recovered. I didn't catch a lot of fish but the ones I did catch were the largest I have ever gotten.

The scenery was spectacular and the rivers were sparkling and clear. What more could one ask for? Mom
