Before the Storm

Dad had the hot hand every day.

After a 2 year hiatus, I was finally able to make it back to my favorite fishing location on earth.  Not only did the fishing not disappoint but seeing old friends and catching up with some good buddies made it as good a trip as one could have hoped for.  Low clear and cold are conditions not typically attributed to the rainforest, and it was strange seeing the rivers as low as I ever have.  Fortunately that didn't slow the fish down from moving to the fly, and when you found one there tended to be more around.  After we left conditions returned to normal, and the sky opened up.  I'm not complaining about three days without the rain jacket ever, and am glad the water finally came. Here are a couple shots from the trip, and the full story will be in the April issue of Swing the Fly.

Could you have a hat with more mojo?
