Pacific Surf Too Cool to Handle

We probably should’ve suspected a rough day of fishing.  Last night around dinner time it got cold here on the Pacific side of Baja.  Like in the 50°s cold!  Then this morning we woke up to the same and dense fog and clouds.  Didn’t matter though, we packed up the car and headed to no man’s land on the Pacific Ocean coast where I fished a few years ago with Sammy and Grant and had great luck.

 

Today didn’t provide any great luck however.  This photo doesn’t show just how intimidating and inhospitable the surf fishing really was.  Despite my stripping basket and my Clear Tip Titan Taper it was near impossible to get my fly out far enough.  Even if I did, the waves didn’t have enough gap between them for my fly to sink into the zone.

 

Tough fishing doesn’t get the “Currier’s” down however.  Just when you think you got it bad – check out this cow with the cactus stuck in his nose.  We all know the old saying, “A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work”.

 

Tomorrow its back to the Sea of Cortez where the temperatures are immensely warmer.
