Title: I need to fish more often
Post by: flyinlow on April 20, 2019, 19:44:53 PM
Got out today for the first time in a while, as i had a free day i was looking forward to all week. Plan A was to hit some small tribs on this side of the mountains, but as i was headed west from richmond, everything looked pretty high and dirty from that round of weather we got Friday. So plan B it was. Kept pushing to the valley and hit a always dirty spring creek for a few hours. Personal best couple of hours I've ever had on that creek with double digit numbers and average size. Big, dark, and deep is what seemed to be working, so i fished the same fly the entire time.

On the way back home, i took a quick detour and picked up a brookie on the east slope.

Looks like a great stream to "not" like. Glad you even found a place to fish with all the rain we keep having.

Nice fish for sure  !!
