To follow up - Tweetsie was fun with the little one. I hate chair lifts.

Had a little time this evening. Went to another flow. Only one green sunfish to show for myself. A far cry from yesterday's showing.

WMT gets prettier and prettier every time I see him - spinning combo and all.

I've hit three rivers this week. First day was badass. The other two blew balls. My plan to fish today was a wash - live to fish another day.

I'd tap that.

I've pounded three rivers this week. I can't shake the taste of river bassin'. Back to the water I went for the fourth time in five days.

Another productive day it was. Heavy precipitation yesterday evening had screwed me on some flows -- but others appeared unscathed. Bring it.

I lost the first three fish I contacted. Wtf. Maybe I need larger hooks? Size 4 is what I've been using. Nailed this. Finally, one to hand.

After only wading up maybe 20' this fish put a deep bend in the rod. The largest spotted bass I've caught in the area. A scrappy species they are. Hell of a fight.

At one point my line got wadded up in my rod tip. I jerked a little too aggressively out of frustration -- resulting in a broken rod tip. Fuck me. I'll have to get this fixed.

A tributary.

Strip much? Every joint I've got on a few fingers is down to the meat from stripping line. May have to grab a pair of gloves. Sore as hell.

Downriver float with Jim.  No Roanoke's above Coleridge dam.  Just bass, carp, and gar, crappie.

I see. I'm thinking maybe the U.

Another day. Swung little man by daycare and headed to my destination. Stopped for some tape for my fingers. It worked perfectly. Also, borrowed a rod tip for my broken fly rod.

Met this little fella. Almost laid my hand on it while making my way between boulders.

Caught a few. Lost a few. Waded back to the truck to hit another river.

It sucked. First time trying it out.

Yesterday - One rock bass to hand. That's it! Dingy water.

@Onslow - Here's the damn dam situation.
