It's that time of year againfor the annual SNP Boy Scout weekend scheduled
for April 21 - 23. This year we are camping both Friday and
Saturday night at Dundo Group campground.
http://www.nps.gov/shen/downloadable/Dundo_campground.pdf

The campground is located around mile marker 90, south of Loft Mountain.
Most of you will get on the Skyline Drive at Thornton Gap (I64) and come
north. We will probably fish Mill Prong again. It's about a 40 minute drive
north.

We will be instructing the scouts on Saturday for native brook trout. Some of the boys will have their own rods, but most won't. We will need
to provide rods for them to use.
Sunday we will be fishing for fun!!

I'll take care of breakfast Saturday and Sunday, and dinner Friday and Saturday. The scouts have been providing lunch on Sat.

Last year we had a couple people bring their kids and that will be ok again this
year.

If you have never fished for native brookies in the park, this is your chance to hook up with some experience park rats. 

Signed up to help so far.

Bad w/e for me. I'll let you know if I get the w/e free.... but it doesn't look good now....

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

I hope when I have kids I have a boy to go to scout things with. That seems like sooo much fun. You should be proud of the little men. Kids that grow up outside stay outta trouble and tend to be better kids all around in IMO.

the Scouts.

Sunday we will be fishing for fun!!I'll be providing dinner both nights and
breakfast Sat and Sunday. The Scouts will provide lunch Sat.  I'll have flies
and leaders.

Last year the boys caught over 30 fish and had a great time.  Probably be a few less boys this year so hopefully we will be one on one.

Tim:

Sorry, I can't make it this year. I do have a whistle, two-way radio, flare gun, map, portable GPS, silver reflective search blanket, satellite phone, waterproof matches and the Boy Scout handbook on ow to avoid getting lost in the woods, that I would be happy to loan to my friend -- OTS. ;)

Since I have to make the drive to the park on Friday I figured I'd leave a little early to beat the traffic and maybe fish before setting up camp.  Does anyone want to meet up late am early afternoon to make sure the fish will be willing for the scouts?

The camp site at Dundo is reserved.  Will post the site number as soon as I get it.  Looks like it's going to be dry and with waters low.  Will probably fish Rose and Hogcamp instead of Millpong on Sat. I plan on getting to the campgound by 6 and will start dinner.

I don't consider myself a great trout fisherman, but I have found that if I cast long enough at a specific trout, rest it from time to time, be patient, change flies that at some point I can at least get a rise. Miss it more often than not, but I get a rise. :-\

So, what has happened to OTS?

The fly is out there -- a size 8 improved sofa pillow. I am sure he can see it. Right down the middle of the feeding lane. No drag. Drifting free and clear and waiting to be smacked.

Figured, he would have at least come up to look at it, drifted down stream for a while with his nose being  tickled by the hackle and then reject it.

But nothing...

I got to quit trolling and go back to fly fishing... ;D
