More dead artist videos....

I had not been on a small stream in 2 months.

We got hot, we got really dry. Quick like.

But, we got treated to regular thunderstorms last week.

Then a kind visit from Fred. Sorry, NC.

I wanted to head to this stream last Friday, but situations conspired against me.

Went down yesterday and hoped for decent flows.

Gaiters. I was prepared for the nettles.

Water temp was 63, levels were good, not great.

The Rattlesnake Plantain Orchids were past prime. Just like me. :laugh:

Fished the old Scott 7' 3wt glass I got from Muddy.

I like this rod. A lot.

I was not whacking them. A fish here and there.

LDR'd the best 2 fish of the day. No slam.

But it was good to wet wade and fish in the shade.

Good blood pressure day.

As soon as he said "nettles" I knew. Fraiser magnolia sealed the deal.

Good stuff. I've got an old Scott graphite in the 7 3 weight. It's a sweet rod also.

That jewel weed has some wicked nettles. Especially if you shave your legs. :cheers

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.

Still no fishing in SNP?

Still suspended. Need a lot more rain and cooler temps before they open it back up. That part of VA has missed a lot of the rain we all have received and they honestly should of shut it down a month earlier then they did. Lots of FB reports of people fishing it on 90+ degree days with poor water conditions.

I'll be fishing some "quess what stream" water this coming week.

For all of my adoring followers.

LOL.  :;!  p;-
