Spring FlyFishing on the Provo River

Spring flyfishing can be one of the most rewarding times of year to be on the river. It has been a slow start to the year for me. I have been frustrated, even to the point of wanting to retire from flyfishing last week. I even texted one of my friends and my wife that I was retiring. Well, a neighbor talked me into getting out in the morning. We dedicated the entire morning. He got into a couple nice trout early on but I was struggling to get anything to take. I was again discouraged.

I was ready to just grab the camera and shoot the rest of the time away. Well, patience is the key sometimes to getting into some nice trout. I persisted and gave myself a few more casts. On my final cast before shutting it down I hooked into one. Just the feeling of having a fish take my fly and fight with me for a minute rejuvenated me. I lost that first one, but it gave enough excitement to keep flinging flies.

That is the great thing about flyfishing, once you feel a fish on the end of your line it takes away all of the terrible moments and dull periods of not catching anything. We fished on for the next hour or so and caught a few more nice fish. It turned out to be a great day! Needless to say, I am back in the flyfishing game and look forward to more great spring flyfishing on the Provo River.
