A little bit of Montana in New York

I've never been to Montana, and I've never fished the Madison for rainbows.

This past weekend, I fished Esopus Creek from aways downstream back up to the Five Arches Bridge. The rainbows might not grow as large as their cousins out west, but they pull good and hard and make a good show of themselves. The river is beautiful, especially on one of those low cloud days like we had on Saturday. Seemed I could scrape the bottom of the clouds with my rod tip if I got on my tip toes.

After working a mile or so of pocket water, looking at the Catskill Mountains around me, I wondered if this was as close to Montana as I was ever gonna get. If so, I guess I can't complain.

Here's a view of the river looking up toward Five Arches Bridge:

and here's one of her fine trout that made my reel chirp a little bit
