Middle Provo and the Burk!

Me and my brothers set out to hit the middle provo this on April 3rd. My brother Troy is just learning how to fish so we took advantage of some time to go hit the river. We woke up to a few inches of new snow and some cold temperatures. It was cold enough that the eyelits(spelling?) of our rods were icing up. That shouldn't happen in April, in my opinion, but thats fishing. We had fun, troy had a couple of fish on but was unable to land them, and then we hit the mysterious stream, and I caught this whopping 4 pound, 21 inch brown. It was a monster, and lucky for me, had my brother there to net him for me, or it might have taken some time of tiring him out before I could have netted him myself. Thanks Bros!

Lower Provo on April Fools Day!

My brother Brad called me up last thursday, telling me that it had snowed so no work could be done that day. He went on to tell me that he was willing to drive down the canyon and hit up my favorite spot on the lower provo. It was April Fools day, but he wasn't kidding about coming. He came down, and despite it being a bit chilly, we caught some good fish. It was probably the best day he has had on a river ever. Here are just a couple of the pictures of the many fish we caught on this fine day!!!! The flies of the day were of course the olive brassie and the orange opa!
