This is the time of year that many people explore the high lakes in our region. The snows of winter have finally receded, and the trails are open. My friend Greg Heuchert told me he and some friends were going to hike into some lakes and he wanted to try fishing some of these remote waters. He isn’t that experienced of an anglers, so I suggested that he get a teardrop, clear casting bobber and a few flies. I gave him a list of some of my favorite flies I use on the small streams that I fish. Earlier this week he said he had a great story for me. He got the bobber and flies I suggested and bought a rod with a close-faced reel at a garage sale for a dollar. When they got to the first lake and were settled in he tried this outfit. On his second cast he caught a fish. He proceeded to catch several. In fact, he caught fish at every lake they visited on the trip, and even out fished the more experience anglers with more sophisticated gear. Fresh fish was a very nice addition to their meals. I was pleased that my suggestion worked out so well.
