Pimpin' Ain't Easy, Part II
I went headhunting on a local spring creek today. Note the downstream riseform from a large feeding trout.
After spending almost ten minutes quietly beaching my boat and getting into range for a perfect downstream presentation, I delivered a flawless cast right down his feeding lane. After a beautiful drag-free drift, my fly was engulfed....by a 9" brook trout.
I got a couple of dozen fish today on dries and, although I had a great time, none of the fish were "blog-worthy."
That's the tough part about this whole fly fishing blogging thing.
Sometimes when you're up to bat, you just hit singles.
