sat was the official start of trout season, for my family this means another year on the same bank that we have been fishing opening day for last 30+ years. The weather was wet and chilly and the stream was packed. We still had a great time. I made a bamboo spinning rod for my dad and got to watch him catch a good number of fish.
I spent a couple hours on some local streams on sunday with my wife and watched her sight nymph a gorgeous brown. She was so excited, when she finally hooked the fish she just started to yell for me to help her. She did however gain composure and did an excellent job landing it but does need some work on her posing for photos which i will post later.
I fished yesterday and had one of those days of nymphing when you can almost just drop your flys in the water and hook a fish. It was a ball and then the evening brought a couple hours good dry fly fishing. i love central pa. My buddy is pretty new to the dry fly scene so it is fun to watch him improve and get to catch a fair number of fish, i escpecially enjoy watching him do it on a rod that i built. He then gave us nice laugh towards dark when he had a slow motion fall which soaked him up to his neck, i couldnt laugh right away because he left out a gasp for air that scared me but when he said he was ok we both had a good laugh and he kept fishing til he got to cold.
