So we traveled to Bridgeport, CA, from separate locations,  to celebrate Michael’s Birthday…and , obviously – to do some roamin’ around and Fly Fishing. Our family has been coming up to this side of the Sierras since 1952…Aimee and her family have been visitors to Bridgeport since she was a little girl…ALL of us love this place…

Friday afternoon, after Michael and I spent the morning on the east Walker River and Ally and Aimee visited Bodie, CA (the Ghost/Mining Town) we headed out for an afternoon of yachting and Fly Fishing on Little Virginia Lake…
