That was just about the only Cutthroat, Gerry touched all day. I have no idea why, but the East Kootenay's just didn't produce like normal. The upper Elk was a bust and so were most of the tribs. The weather wreaked havoc on us today. It was snowing up high most of the morning and the Steeples were capped in snow on the drive back. We never saw a Green Drake hatch and the BWO's hardly materialized either. So after a tough day of fishing Gerry and I sat back and enjoyed a few of Tree Brewing's Cutthroat Pale Ale. That saved the day. The fishing was disappointing. What wasn't disappointing though was my stay with my great friends Gerry and Susan. Susan all looks after the menu and it's a good thing. After a day of freezing cold rain we came home to a great Beef stew and as always Uvetsi was served on Saturday. I gave Susan and Gerry one of the Mission Hill Select Lot Collection Merlot's. Lucky for me they opened it right away and we washed our miserable day's fishing away with a stellar bottle of wine. Off to Dillon tomorrow, the weather isn't looking any better.
