Took the after noon and headed to the New River again. Met a fellow just getting off the river, Bill Barker, and he reported lots of small fish and two nice ones of 14 & 16, all on top, yellow, white, sliders and poppers.

I was anticipating a great evening of fishing, but the wind had kicked up complicating the wading and casting a bit. But soon enough the Chartreuse Gurgler attracted a nice smalle and I continued to have good luck with that fly. They I noticed that the tread had come unwound and the Gurgler wasn't one anymore. Only other color Gurgler I had in the box was white, so I tied it on. Although it was harder to see, the fish didn't have the same problem! I took a number of 12" and one about 14" who released him self from my grip before I could snap a picture. Fished till dusk, and I drove home shortly after the Canada Geese flew over head!

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.
