Shoulda been nymphin

The river has been looking great, even though the levels are up a bit from normal and we all know what is to come soon with the big snowpack.  We ran a lower river float checking channels and different lies in the big water.  Streamers did for nothing; we spent the early morning hours stripping, dredging, and mending our bugs for not.  Towards early afternoon and the end of our float, we finally bobbered up and immedialtly hooked up.  Well, shit.  I guess we could have tried that about six hours earlier and our float could have been much more productive.  We finished the last bit with the bobs and hooked or landed several more fish in the obvious lies.   So until the warmth and the rain get to the river, keep a bobber close at hand.
