Thumbs up New flyfisherman

Just started late this year. Caught a blue gill on a dry fly after hitting the spot I aimed for in Huntington creek. I was hoping to float it to a trout that was rising below an over hanging bush, but I got pleasure from just casting accurately and catching a fish. Shortly after that I caught my first trout on a dry fly. Then I caught a rock bass on a fly I tied!

Two weeks later I caught two small mouth bass in the Susquehanna!

I'm having fun and have an excellent teacher at Slate Drake Guide Service!

There's still time! Put you gear down and back away slowly and maybe you won't catch the addiction! Nope, no I'm lying; you're already addicted. Glad you're having fun!!

A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!
