Fishing the Metolius on Christmas Day!

What Fun!!!!Christmas day….27 degrees….beautiful sunny day….8 inches of snow….and Dave and I went fly fishing on the Metolius River.  I used my 10′  6″  5 wt bamboo switch rod to swing streamers, and Dave used his  8′  3″  5 wt bamboo rod  to Euronymph small nymphs.  We tempted a few trout to our flies, and got one nice rainbow to the net.  Here are a few photos.
