Ryan, his brother Matt and I made it up to the Price River yesterday afternoon for some fishing. The rail spur from the Skyline Mine rides along the river, so we walked the rail and fished down about four miles along the river. It's been a long time since I last walked a railroad, so I enjoyed that almost as much as the fishing and scenery.

Ryan and Matt caught some very respectable fish, Matt released a nice fat rainbow while Ryan did the same with a similar fish, though a bit more accidentally than did Matt. I caught a wee ten incher and we all caught a selection of fingerlings up and down the river.

I am learning quite a bit about fishing that I have never had the opportunity to try before, so the trips are all fraught with small mistakes and frustrating learning curves. I am learning much to expand my angling abilities, so I should be able to save my kids from some of my current brand of silliness at some point in their fishing lives.

Here is a photo of the river valley, the Price is to the right.

Haha. The Price is right.
