I spent Saturday on the Rim flinging flies to small stream trout. It never ceases to amaze me that we have such beautiful places to fly fish in Arizona. Knowing that it will be a while until I get back up to the high country, I opted to maximize my time and fish three of my favorite creeks, which meant that I put a lot of miles on my boots. I was rewarded with browns, rainbows, and brook trout in the six to twelve inch region, most all coming on the Mini-Hopper.
I have been meaning to put my Black Bear Fiberglass Travel Rod to the test, and I had fun learning a new casting stroke. This rod was super mellow and really bent to the weight of these small fish. Definitely a fun rod to fish with and one that I am glad to have in my quiver.
