As I mentioned before, it's been way too long since I posted last. It's been quite an interesting summer so far. I've fished quite a bit but never enough. I've stayed local and stolen moments when I could to get on the water. None more than a few hours at a time.
I've trash fished with Will and caught a freshwater drum.
We discovered a hidden quarry pond on public land. Caught a few bluegills and lost a gar.
I've gotten to know my favorite little bream pond a bit better - seeing it change from late winter to spring to full blown summer. I've caught the same fish over and again and I've recovered one of my experimental flies from a fish that broke me off. It was a lot smaller than I remember. I've seen some of the small trees lining the waters' edge fall due to the intense weather we've had. I've tried to upright those trees and when they wouldn't stay upright Will and I repurposed them into fish habitat.
I've developed some flies that really work, and really don't work. I've fished some newly developed flies that absolutely blow my flies out of the water (thanks Evan!).
Over the next few months I hope to go explore some new waters fishing for stripers in the North Fork of the White, maybe some more trash fishing, and maybe another trip down to Texas. I will, however, not forsake my home waters. They bring me great comfort and help me to start my day well when I'm able to visit them before work.
