I took my Dad to Looking Glass Creek for a few hours today.  This is the 1st time I really have fished with him since i went to college 20 years ago.  It was also the first time he used a fly rod for trout in 30 plus years.  So, needless to say, just being on the water made the day a success.

Here are some of the particulars.  We fished from about 11-2.  It was about 70 degrees and rained on and off.  Despite the recent rains, the water was still clear.  I don't know the water temp, but I was still able to wet wade comfortably.  Fished mostly Yellow Stims with good success.  However, the best thing I did was tie on a green weenie dropper.  The 'bows were crushing it once I added the dropper.  In one hole, I think I had 5 fish on in 5 straight casts.  The highlight of the day besides my Dad catching some fish, was when he commented on the color of the fish.

Thats pretty cool, you had time to fish with your dad, sounds like the stream was fun to fish!

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.

The only problem is now I have to buy him another new fly rod.  I bought him one as a retirement gift 2 years ago to use on the lake my folks hang out at in PA during the summer.  Now, he is using my 7'6 3 weight and really likes it.  Oh well, I guess it is pay back time after all.   Maybe it is time to check out a new 6"6 for myself and send him home with my rod.   :)

Woolly looks like he is having a really good time.  Or maybe, he just passed gas.   //?

Me and the Dali lama took a double kayack over the falls once.

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