About this time of year the sun starts to stay longer, daylight time kicks in, fruit trees blossom, and I feel Summer coming. Of course, my thoughts turn to trout fishing. Perhaps I will tie some flies and mess with my tackle a bit to hold off an ill-conceived, too early trip to somewhere for marginal Spring fishing in a run-off swollen river.
On a Western Tour trip with my grandsons a couple years ago we stopped for a few days on the Selway River in central Idaho. The water was clear as Absolut, the Westslope Cutthroats were dashing 4 or 5 feet from the bottom to take my Royal Wulff on the surface.
I feel Summer coming.
