I said: "Where are you thinking of going?"
Ben said: "Black Canyon."
"Wow, that's a good hike and I just did 11 miles into Slough Creek, the Black Canyon will be another 8-9 miles..."
"So, are you game?"
"Chelle is it OK with you?" She said: "Go have fun."
"OK I'm in." I said. (thinking I must be crazy for doing back-to-back hikes on this ankle)

BUT--- I'm so glad I did... Ben and I had a great day of fishing and fellowship. He is great to be around, easy going, carefree and one hell of a fisherman. We caught a boat load of fish in the 12-16 inch range. Ben's best fish was 18 inches, which we failed to capture on film and mine was also about 17-18 inches the photo is below...
Another wonderful day in Yellowstone, thanks Ben for dragging me another 9 miles to go fishing ~ I loved every minute of it... ~ Doug.
|On the streamer in a big eddy, it's so cool to see them come and get the fly.|
|Ben's Cutthroat - we caught almost all Cutthroats|
|A hopper-dropper accounted for a bunch of fish too...|
|Fat healthy fish - just beautiful...|
