Fly Fishing with the Raptors
Karen and I floated the Red Deer River on Saturday of the Victoria Day long weekend. We had a great time fly fishing. We encountered almost every species in the river except brown trout. Very few risers and most of those were the always cooperative goldeye. We saw blue winged olives and some March Browns and lots of caddis later in the day.The river was in perfect shape. Just a bit off colour and a flow rate that made the run pleasant. We always marvel at the raptors along the Red Deer River. They can get their lunch when ever they choose.
Babies in the nest already!
What a great spot for this osprey to rule a stretch of the Red Deer River.
Pepper kept himself entertained.
