Well, this report is coming a couple weeks late, but cut me some slack...I've been busy.  :-\

After more than a week on the road I flew into DC on Friday night 6/2 from FL, where we had just been fishing in the gulfstream that morning, caught a few winks then was up and at-em and on the road that morning headed toward the Shenandoah Valley (after replacing the battery in my jeep... o-o)  Met up with my buddies that afternoon at the local fly shop (not the one where FT hangs out sometimes...  :-[ )  They proceeded to tell me how good the fishing was that I had missed that morning...you can always count on your good friends for that.  Then it was off to Mossy, we fell on some hard times during the mid afternoon hours with only one fingerling landed, finally we decided to take a break and just sat down on the bank and waited for the sulphurs.  Finally I could take it no longer and decided to try again.  Well I'm glad that decision was made, because just a few drifts in, this fatty fell to a sulphur emerger...

The rest of the evening we fished to rising fish, however the supreme fisherman emerged, with me being the only one to catch more than a fingerling   ;D

Heres another smaller one I got right at dark.

After we were finished at Mossy, we headed for the hills to find a camping spot...  One rotweiler & police report later, we arrived at camp and had a couple brews and some hotdogs and baked potatoes from the fire, a good finish to a long day.  The next morning we packed up camp and hit a couple bluelines in the GWNF and were well rewarded, plenty bugs in the air and hungry fish.  The water was a little low and the fish spooky, but the norm was still about 2 fish per pool, some decent size to a few of them too, all on top.  Here are the pics.

I swear this hole had 50 brookies in it...

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Got to watch your self up in that mountain stream. Bears, snakes, goats, and all sorts of strange creatures and beings. FT took me up in there once and I'm too scared to go back. :o

Good report Jason.  That blue line is even lower now.  I went through there yesterday, on up to the head of it.  Lots of sections with no water showing at all.  Wife and I took the jeep trail across to Union Springs.
