400kms of driving, for fishing 45 minutes away!

Yesterday hurt. Rain and more rain. Drove down to the Oldman in hopes that the rain would have stopped and the river clear. It wasn't. The rain was still pouring (to the point that the road was in brutal shape).
Seems like the Oldman got the worst of it for weather, as it was pure and utter mud.
Drove upstream a bit and followed the mud, before finally giving up and heading back north.
Ended up on another stream, and headed to a favourite spot, to only have the rain start pouring again on us. Luckily we had a back up plan, and made our way there.
400 km's of driving to end up fishing an area 45 minutes from home.

I guess it didn't suck all that bad. (sorry bout the bad quality, the zoom on the camera aint great)

A pretty good bully on a brand new fly. Makes up for the long drive pretty quickly
