The Valley brownies decided to populate shallow riffles & runs today. We probably caught all of our fish (both of us fishing nymphs) in quicker moving, ankle to calf-high water. Although you could see the trout holding in the deeper pools as well, they just didn't seem to want to be very active.

Unfortunately, I really wasn't quick on the draw with the camera today. We fished about 25 yards apart (to give each other ample space) most of the time, so I never really got any pictures of his trout - which he probably caught about 9 or 10.
To compound that error, I didn't get any pics of my own trout either, since 3 of my 4 decided to "self release" at my feet as I was trying to coax them into my net. At least Flyguy did witness a tenkara fight on a nice sized brown. He said it had to be about 25 inches (with a wink), but it was more likely 10 at the most.
I did take a couple other pictures of some of the water we fished and some scenery in general.

In all, it was good couple of hours fishing. I hope to fish with Flyguy again soon - now that introductions are done, would love to pick his brain some more. I think I can learn a lot from him.
