If the feelings around leaving home for a two month bike fishing trip weren't enough, Nancy and I have decided to move to Alaska, in February, while I'm pedaling down the coast. Suddenly, I not only have two weeks left before the trip, but also two weeks left in our Wyoming home.
I've been reading water my whole life: trout water that is. One of the most rewarding things about fishing is looking at a stretch of river, knowing how hydraulics work, and realizing where a trout will hold. It's even better when you cast to that spot and are rewarded with a fish. Knowing my 30 year obsession with rivers, I should have been more confident with my white water reading skills.
