Today's fishing plans were almost derailed by some drama with the girls.  While suiting up to perform hive inspections, a bee on an odd flight path smacked my son on the head, and it was discovered a swarm was hanging out in the elements in the brush/burn pile.  This little episode set things back an hour after a busy morning of setting out tomato and pepper plants, and various other gardening tasks.

Headed to the big plateau in VA to chill in a stream that is familiar, and featured on the this forum four times previously.  It is low hanging fruit right under peoples noses, and less than an hour from the house.

Started at 3:15, and things were a bit slow per usual early on. Skinny water great for plucking juvis with dries, but that was not my game today.

Moving upstream a bit, the stream necks down sporting deeper pools and more ledges.

A rather odd colored mayfly.  No clue on the variety.

After two hours on the stream, it was time to make my way to the truck. A short wade back down, and straight out of the gorge completed in 30 minutes after fishing/wading just over a mile.

No a great showing, but better than nothing.

Good stuff!  'c; Most of the creeks are still blown out here, and my usuals in the park are closed.
