Earlier this year I had a ski trip fall through and I ended up not taking a vacation day at work. The weather was fantastic – so good that I decided to go fly fishing on the Owyhee River instead of backcountry skiing for a mental health day. I went fishing with my dog (Moose, who is a Pudelpointer). He was pretty good, but would only stay on the bank for 15 minutes at a time. After that he came crashing into the water looking for whatever was swimming around. Overall a great day in the middle of winter and not a bad week because I got to backcountry ski, mountain bike and fly fish all within 6 days. Oh yeah, I worked a bit in the middle of all that!

Here are some of the photos I snapped on the river:

Went out the Owyhee Mountains last Sunday looking for some chukar. Decided to go some areas where I had not been in a long time. Only hunted for about 2 hours and it snowed the whole time we were hunting. We drove out Reynolds Creek, across to Macks Creek (where we hunted), and then drove back to town via Wilson Creek Rd.
