Great Fun on the Pyramid Outing

The group arrived on Friday throughout the day and many visited Bob and Jean at their trailer where they had been successfully fishing Pyramid since their earlier arrival. Weather was cold and fishing was slow but the company was great. Dena, Jean and Amy landed fish the first day. Friday night dinner, hosted by Jerry and Jeanette was yummy and filled with jokes and laughter. Saturday was the most productive fishing day for all- Thomas landed his first fish on the fly. Charlie landed a fish as did and Ron. Dena had a few hits and Amy landed one. Saturday night dinner at Crosby's was really delicious and the group sat together sharing stories of the weekend. Sunday didn't land any fish as everyone made their way home after a fun weekend. Special thanks to fishmeisters Jerry and Jeanette and a big high five to Greg for his rescue of a potential Incomplete Angler winner!
