Yuba Begin Again 12-1-2014

No dataclysm here,
Only in the raw.
Either your catching or not.
No magic rectangle held in your hand
can tell you the code.
Only an observant eye can have
a chance to crack it.
It is nature,
adjusting to its moment.
Only ego must observe and adjust
to become ever present in its flow.
Nature has no ego.

Openning day on the Yuba proved to be spectacular, the day was perfect. 30 fish to hand 10 of which were on BWO drys between 11am-2pm. The rest were on beads and red copper john's, a number of times two at a time. Todd and I both found and hooked twice the 28 inch stellie the biologist had reported being in the river, However our 3x tippets and 4wt split cane rods had no traction on her. In the late afternoon Todd and I hiked back upstream to the fiffle we located her in, but this time she was busy cutting her red. We just sat on shore and watched letting her be, just enjoying the sight of such a beutiful fish.
