With work lately being as busy as ever, and the weather looking like it's going to stay spring like, I made plans to fish and hike one of the larger SNP drainages on Sunday.
Loaded up the truck with an excited pup, and headed west from Richmond. Picked up a friend who was also needing to get out, and hit the trail. We arrived at the trailhead shortly after sunrise. There's a happy dog ahead:Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login

Dang, those water levels don't look bad at all. You all must of got more rain than we got south of SNP.
refreshing! need more details on the boo! water looks sweet, I know putting a green/pink weenie on a boo would be blaspheme, but ....
Shenandoah Valley Airport at Weyers Cave records say we have had 4 inches of rain since January 1 but 1.26" came on one day. We are dry on this side of the mountains.https://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/KSHD/2017/1/1/CustomHistory.html?dayend=22&monthend=3&yearend=2017&req_city=&req_state=&req_statename=&reqdb.zip=&reqdb.magic=&reqdb.wmo=
The water levels were great, surprising because I looked at the gauges further down and the river was low.
Woolly, the bamboo rod is a 7' with a 3 wt line. Could use a 4 wt. I bought the blank and finished it out a few years ago. The grip was a pre finished one, but I'm turning my own grips and seats now. I turned the seat, and it's my first turn at a flat slide band seat. Didn't turn out perfectly, but I'm happy with how it works. The wood came from my grandfathers stash, so it has some significance. Thanks for noticing!
Damn, shockingly good water levels. Glad you got out.
