The Day's Are Getting Better
Another few hours in paradise. That's how I felt yesterday. I mean brilliant sunshine warm breezes and a few willing fish to the surface. It's odd how one can fish a stream for years and find some sections you have completely missed. I consider myself a slow poke when it comes to fishing. I usually fish everything that can possibly hold a fish, and I take my time to cover these places well. Then there are those places where I fish each time I'm on that stream and have never caught a fish. But you know what I still fish it because you never know.
Being so nice yesterday I was able to fish SSR's bamboo rod. I know it is only the second outing with it but I feel a love affair with it emerging. On this outing it performed flawlessly. It placed the fly where I cast and was responsive to the strike. In this photo you see that submerged log well right in the arched section in the shadow a fish was rising. The fly was presented and it was taken.
This was the trout that was looking up. These fish have come out of the winters cold and are extremely aggressive. See the nasty scar...tough survivor.
I turned over some rocks and found many of these.
A run with bright sunlight upon it, then why can't I see the fish?
It was there and he took a Adam's Parachute. Strong wild jewel.
