The Ultimate Sportsman

Yesterday was such a beautiful day we decided to make the most of it in the best way we know how. We spent a few hours fishing on the Weber River by Wanship, enjoying the "warm" weather. The river was full of whitefish and a handful of browns, both of which we caught several. Once again the fly of the day was the olive zebra midge, though Seth landed one or two on his bead head hare's ear nymph. We are really getting attached to the Weber River. I always enjoy fishing other rivers, but the Weber feels like home.

It turned out to be a nice brown

Reloading... I (unknowingly) kept trying to catch fish without flies. Seth calls this the "ultimate sportsman." If you can catch fish with just a line, you've reached the top.
