  2. So I was also skunked – although I read the advice about the outlet a little too late. On the other hand as I was changing a fly I saw a bear behind me. He almost made me add a swimming leg to the flyathlon but it turned out he was more interested in berries than fishermen.

    Run time: 53:00 minutes up, 43:44 down
    No fish
    Beer: Denver Pale Ale (yeah, no fish but I also didn’t get eat by a bear)

    Wrote up a blog on it if anyone is interested:
