A full boat and a very windy day!

Today I had three great anglers in my boat. We were prepared for cold weather but with the sun shining it was not too cold. We launched around 9 in the morning and were the second boat on the water. As we rigged up three or four boats launched and cruised down river of us. We did some quick casting lessons and then headed down river. Everything was going perfect until we rounded the first bend and hit a brick wall of wind!!! It was terrible and blowing right in our faces. But my angling group was not about to give up. They lustened tomy advice and were doing the best they could to cast into the wind. After some frustrating wind knots we got rid of our indicators and fished a dry dropper rig. It was easier to cast and gave us immediate results! We took our tume floating the top half of the A section and had lunch below steam boat rock. After a good lunch break we started our fight against the wind again. These guys didnt give up and kept up their great attitudes despite the wind kicking our butts. I look forward to fiahing with this great family again and hopefully without the wind. Flies were pretty much the same as the last few trips and the fish were beautiful and very hungry. Here are a few pics from the day.

The wind had these poor midges stuck on the side of my boat
