Went back to a stream in VA I hadn't fished in a couple years. Figured I pay this place a visit before the area properties are developed.
Got down to the water shortly before 8, and fished until 11. Things didn't seem to be coming together too well. Lost a rig in the trees right out of the gate. 30 minutes in, I lost a 16"is fish right at the net. Not long after I hooked up with a large fish that I could not control and lost another tandem rig. I have no idea how large this fish was. The damn thing took off upstream and wrapped my line in some brush. Somehow I managed to loose rig #3 because my main knot wasn't mis tied. I cannot see anymore. Despite all the mishaps, it wasn't a shabby day.

While tussling with a fish, my camera settings for AP were changed to fragment. This pissed me off a bit being it was quite the fighter, and a memorable fish
Gotta love water on the lens. This one measured 18"
Getting in and out was no picnic. Tons of dead rhodo branches at the top. No leg breaky tho.
On the way home, I stopped by a another stream to fish a short stretch I had not previously tried. Yes this is a state road. The ford was a little deeper than expected possibly due to the water being up a bit.

There was no place to park on the shoulders so I simply parked in the stream
Didn't catch anything though.
Dang, dude! Pretty sweet.
