I went away for my autumn fly-fishing weekend.
Saturday was tough, as I had to work hard to land four fish. Today, Sunday, was crazy: I caught 62 trout, amidst freezing weather and a few snow squalls.
Here is a view of my Saturday morning.
I caught quite a few trout, including rainbows, browns, and brookies.
At one point, I caught a bunch in a row, all of which were 10″ to 12″. Here is a net of 20 trout (or, click here). Don’t worry, I let them all go.
I really enjoyed meeting Jay from Southwick, MA. He came up to me while I was fishing. We were the only anglers on the river.
We chatted, and he just started learning how to fly fish. I gave him some of my flies, suggested where he should cast, and watched him land two fish very quickly. I yielded that spot to him, as I think it’s cool when someone new can immediately hook fish. I had caught plenty by then.
Below, or click here, is a video of us, fishing during a snow flurry.
And, here is a visage from the drive home, taken from out of the windshield. Don’t worry, I had pulled over to snap the picture.
