On this Sunday I had several firsts happen to me. Number 1, this was the first time I have fished this stream since last September. At that time it was dried up, only dry dark stones laying in the sun. As I walked along the stream this day its waters were flowing swift and clear.
Number 2, I had the opportunity to fish my friend, a repaired Orvis Superfine.
Number 3, while walking along the stream I noticed several skunk cabbage popping up through the ground. A sure sign of Spring.
And last, but most important. I was able to hook two wild trout in a run that was only stones 6 months ago. While these fish never came to hand, the feeling of them trying to gain their freedom was special. I was thankful for their return.
