Hectic week, but had a few hours allotted this morning to git, so i got.  Chatted a few creeks up with Onslow, but had to notarize a car title for my barber in Elkin so decided last minute to fish that direction.

I was stringing up at 730, hiked up and was casting by 8.  The first couple hundred yards sucked ass.

Narrow, rhodo choked and steep banked.  When it finally opened up i realized my net was missing.  Had that BROdin at least 10-11 years now and i was hoping it would materialize on the hike out.  First fish hit a PMX, a small brookie that didnt want his picture made.

Fishing the wrong pattern?

Plenty of fungus with all the rain

Ended up catching several browns like this one, on the dry and a beadhead soft hackle.

This sucked to traverse, especially when there was an impassible falls 50 yards past it...tons of nettle out right now on this one.

Found the net on the way out.

Fished the main stem when i got back to it for a short spell, caught a couple more dinks and had a nice 12-13" fish come up and take a dry but didnt get the hook.  Pissed about that one.

Back into cell service by 1045

Nice!  :Dance

I've lost a BROden net before, the swivel popped out and the net floated away never to be seen again. I called or sent them an email about the net failure and the sent me a brand new net no charge.

Recently that fitting failed on the new net and I just drilled a hole in the handle and made a loop out of paracord to secure the magnet lanyard that I use.
ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

I was noticing the diverse bunch of rocks in the brown picture . At least 20 different types of stones in that flick .. I am not a rock nut(mebbe a rock head) ,but that is damn interesting.



what do you need a barber for
