Title: 3 weeks in TC; 1 wild pig
Post by: FoulHook on May 24, 2010, 19:23:20 PM

I got a 3 week break between the end of spring semester and summer classes, so I figured I would go home, sleep on my parents couch, and catch a bunch of wild trout.  Met up with Transylwader one saturday to take on some brookies, but since my waders busted and I was waiting on my replacements to arrive I had to pack light and didn't take the camera, but he already posted a story and pics for that trip. 

So here's some pics from 3 weeks in "God's Country"

One evening I was walking around in the woods around my house with my little brothers and some stubby cane poles with fishing line tied to them catching chubs and 1-2" baby 'bows when we came across this fine looking pool overgrown with rodo's.  It was just a little bitty creek, but this little pool was amazing, we watched wild trout chasing chubs around this pool for probably 30 minutes, and some of them looked 14+".  The next day we came back and I brought my rod, decided to go with SJW since I knew they would hit it hard and I'd only have the one chance to hook one.  I think this was one of the smaller ones, but man was it awesome! This one is about 11", but sure is fat.  Next time I'm home I'm going back to try to get a bigger one... If only I had a 6' 2/3wt rod to really get under that rodo... the ol' 9' 5wt was a little cumbersome.

If you had made that offer a few weeks ago.. Ms. Vokey was in VA putting on a fly fishing clinic for women. I am sure I could have arrange something since my amigo Dave Hise was her host! ;) Since we missed her,  would a homeless hooker and some colt 45 suffice for a trip to the secret fishing hole? 8)

Saweet report by the way!
