After Work Brookie Fix

After work yesterday, I decided I was due for a little time on the trout stream.  Virginia received a little bit of rain this past week and thought I'd check out a stream close by and see how it is holding up this summer.  Surprisingly, the stream levels were pretty good for the middle of summer.  The stream had a fairly big Stenacron hatch on it.

These mayflies were all over the place and had the trout looking up.  I have fished this stretch of water countless times and I can easily say this was the most trout I have ever caught from this stretch in a single session.  As soon as the dry fly hit the water the trout were on it and several were had in each pool and run. 

I also notice that I drive a whole lot slower on the way from a trout stream then I do to the trout. 

Some Monday dry fly therapy never hurt.

Jon Boat Changes

Did a little work on the boat this weekend.  My little underpowered outboard sits up to high above the bottom of the boat and the prop cavitating.

So I bought a set back bracket and installed it.  This bracket puts the prop below the bottom of the boat and back into some cleaner water.

Also removed the previous owners rod holders and added in some rod storage for the boat.

The trailer has been greased and new tires put on it as well.  The boat is ready for the fall musky bite.

Selling Musky Flies and Miscellaneous Flies and Materials.

Thought I'd take a moment to say I've decided to take selling my flies more seriously.  Mainly my musky flies as I do not see many on the market for sale like them.  Also be looking to see some body tubing I use for my flies to go up on there soon.  Here is a link to my first listing.

Wading for Smallies

Hit the James after work last  night for some smallies.  A couple people were fishing that stretch already, but my friend and I were still able to entice a few smallies.  Small and dinky they were.
