This weekend we're going up to Santa Fe for our annual opera trip - Fidelio this year. Kind of quirky, set in Nazi Germany, but still with all the Spanish surnames! Reviews have been great.

Next weekend we're off to Missoula to see Mrs. C's daughter, and hopefully to fish a little... Looks like the hoppers are out, which is good, because my presentation sucks - SPLAT!!

Last three weekends have been absorbed with the car project - swapping out the WRX suspension for a Forester's. Lots more ground clearance for hunting & fishing, but handles like a boat (comparatively) on the road. Three weekends for a 4 hour job - that's what happens when accountants think they can be mechanics!

Not a lot of trad going on!

Car looks great, I could use something like that for the winters around here.
Keep us posted, I hope you get in some good fishing! Hopper-dropper, you know? Tie a nymph on to the bend of the hopper hook, with maybe 14" of tippet. Works well, easier to cast than you might think.

Thanks Ben. I have a hard enough time with just a dry. Easy is all relative! I still might try your suggestion, what's to lose? My boss was on a guided trip in Missoula at the end of June. Said the only way to catch lots at that time was with droppers. 3 of them caught and released almost 100 fish one day using that rig on the Bitteroot. Dries he said might get you 5 or 6 fish then.
