As I promised myself, I fished today. This meant braving horrible winds, with leaves blowing into the stream and catching on both line and fly. I did see two trout, one an obese looking holdover rainbow, the other a smaller brown. Neither wold eat. The cold snow melt must be the culprit. I did see an enormous beaver. My father told me he had once seen a beaver so big he mistook it for a small black bear. I now know why!
