I haven't been fishing after work in what seems like forever, blame it on too much work, too much other chit to do, the hot weather, my sore toe, you name it.  This week I had to get out, and after yesterday's torrential downpours I figured I'd hit up my go-to after-work brookie water.  Headed out of work at 4:00, feet wet at 4:38.

First cast, had a brookie chase the fly and fish was on, as luck would have it he was the biggest fish of the hour, and as I fiddled to get my camera out, he got off.  Good sign of more stuff to come though.  All told I hooked into 8 brookies, brought 3 of them to hand in a hour, not bad for the dog-days of summer.  I quickly ate the hour up and headed home, part of that was spent casting 3 different flies to a single fish to get him hooked, took 2 of the 3 flies I presented (1 of them 3 times), but never could get a hook set, eventually I gave up.

All were nice reminders of why I continue to feed this satisfying addiction that is fly fishing.

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

Maybe it is because they have to work with people like you.

although I think that about all of them everyday, so I guess it balances out in the end.    ;D
