Last month, my fiancee suggested we head out to West Virginia to camp for my birthday, so of course I immediately searched out the closest state park to my favorite swing water and loaded up the trout spey!
Once we were out there, she dropped me off at the river and hit the riverside rail trail for a bike ride while I spent the afternoon working through a new-to-me stretch of the river. I was already stoked to get out on bigger water for a day of swinging for trout, but the fun quotient went over the top when she rode up to collect me for the day in time to catch a few shots of me hooking up with and landing a solid birthday fish!
Fun to have some action shots for change, but really super cool to share the tug with the lady. Jury's still out on whether "the drug" confers a contact high, but she's at least up for another trip out to the spot this winter now that she know's there's a good bike ride in the cards for her when we go out!
