Hatcher Lake, CO

Day 4 - Ben's grandpa, Frank was nice enough to take me on one of the Pagosa Lakes near his home.  He taught me new and effective trout fishing techniques in deep water (like 28 ft).  I took a nice 20" bow and had two hogs that broke off.  

But Frank was masterful fishing this lake and took maybe 15 fish.  The big one that got away had ripped out some of his backing within 4 seconds and then broke off.  He did land a nice 21+ rainbow as well as some hefty perch.

Then Ben's aunt and uncle and family arrived from Hawaii, and we had dinner and mapped out pristine and secret places in the San Juan and Wimenuche Wilderness areas to explore.
