Thanks for the Eastside
These images come to us – for your Thanksgiving viewing enjoyment – from Josh Mills who writes the blog Chucking Line and Chasing Tail. More great photos can be found there. Upland bird hunters should definitely stop by.
The first picture is from the Lower Grande Ronde. Typically this end of the river is stuffed full of fisherman who are way, way to serious. To buck the trend, we found a gigantic foam cowboy hat and my buddy Mike from Portland rocked it for most of the day. Got a few weird looks, but he still caught fish! I love this shot with Mike and my father as it looks Mike’s listening intently to some story from my dad, all while rocking the ridiculous hat.
The other are two from my annual trip to Chopaka Lake in Northeast WA. It’s a beautiful place with clockwork mayfly hatches. The scenery doesn’t hurt either.
-by the way Josh, we couldn’t agree more about the super serious kooks on the lower Ronde. It is a great fishery, however, and we’re glad you imported a little humor to that spot!
