I closed 2019 with an epic fail. I was considering where to fish, but I was reticent on where to fish. My heart wasn't in it? Anyhow, I choose small and got skunked for the first hour+. Packed up and cruised over to the cursed tailwater. With my 7' rod and no tailwater flies. Fished a really good run. Nada. Packed up and went home to good food and wine. It ended up that I was coming down with a cold, too. Bad holiday juju.

Kids, presents, glorious meals and the cold mostly behind me, it was redemption day. Middle daughter was thrown a shower by her aunts at the Homestead. Anne was invited, but I wasn't. Awww, that's a shame.  :laugh:

I drove her up, left her at the front door and went fishing for a few hours.

J fished the lower last week. I fished the upper. Crappy little money stream, 12 months of the year. A very light rain and warm temps were on tap.

A hell of good start to the year. Nicely done.

What's a "money stream?"

Those Classic Trouts in the lighter weights are about the most pleasant casting carbon fiber rods ever made.

What about a "crappy little money stream"?

I dig it though, and the rod is a hell of a deal with the warranty they provide.

It's a semi roadside stream. Little pressure? Trash, erosion, always hungry, nice fish.

Money. Always on.

Nice report.  It's hard to beat the CT, great little rods.
