Tiny

The Scott G2 772/4 and Abel TR Light combo weighs in at a scant 4.6 ounces. Tiny.

The class of fish it’ll bag? Not so much.

The outing was designated specifically for capturing photographs. But the party got started and then quickly morphed into a knock-down, drag-out bash – an all day session of coaxing very pissy brown trouts out from deeply undercut banks. And then keeping them there. With some caddis and baetis dries, 2-weight rods, and 6X tippets.

Then the police showed up skeeters ran us off. Which is the excuse we’ll use if anyone asks why we only got two photos.

Pro hat.

Indeed. Ranks up there with women in flowered sundresses and herding pups on my list of very favorite things.
