A Saturday’s Worth of Fly Fishing

I woke up at 3.30 am today. Drove to a river. Fished all day, and ate lunch standing up in the river. Drove back. Arrived home at 8.30 pm.

I had a blast.

The sun felt warmer today, and there were more bugs emerging, which is good for the trout and is a clear sign that spring is arriving.

I today hooked only little fish, and landed nine of them. Below, is one. It fought valiantly, using the currents to try and get away. A joy to net and then behold.

I still cannot believe that some steel, thread, and feathers tied together by hand can fool a trout. Pretty amazing.
