They’re baaack...

Trout trucks trundle into fishing season

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad: By week’s end, we’re gonna have some fish in the creek sufficiently wide-eyed and innocent for me to catch. And I’ve got all my flies — wet and dry — fit to be tied and waiting in their little foam padded plastic boxes. I’ve got flies so lively they’ll make a lunker laugh. I’ve got lures so luscious they’ll make a lunker linger. I’ve even got a raccoon-approved backup plan, thanks to Tonto Creek Hatchery co-manager Bruce Denova: A pocket full of pebbles. But then, I’ve buried the lead.
