I stopped on the way to the Jam on Friday at one of my favorite brookie streams that I didn't get a chance to fish this year. Had about a 40 minute, kick butt, fish catching good time. Only took the time to fish the absolute best holes. Kinda primed the pump for the weekend. Fished Friday evening with John (JF) at the Little J and and we had a good evening fishing the sulphur hatch. I caught my best fish of the weekend on the Little J that evening. Thanks John. I spent the majority of the weekend fishing the Little J, Penns and Spring with Jack (lv2nymph) and Brian (mario66pens). Jack is a good nymph fisherman and I learned a lot from him, when he says " I think I would add another split shot or move your indicator up about 7 inches" he is not kidding. The devil is definitely in the details when it comes to nymphing. Jack totally set me up for a nice brownie on Spring Creek on Sunday. Brian is a good kid and a darn good flyfisherman IMO (even though he is a Penguins fan .... (just kidding, Brian I couldn't pass up the opportunity, lol). Thanks to both Jack and Brian for a great couple days of fishing. I had the chance to catch a decent wild brown on the Little J, Penns and Spring Creek this weekend and I learned an awful lot while doing it with some great fishing buddies. The brown on Penns was my first trout ever caught on Penns Creek and I got him Saturday evening during a March Brown spinnerfall on top. Pretty cool! I attached a few pictures from the weekend.

The entire weekend rocked, almost too many stories to tell. That day on spring was really cool, those fish that day were very acrobatic almost every fish hooked came out of the water multiple times. It was fun putting our heads together figuring out what those brownies wanted that day. Gotta do it again.

Wanted to thank Ryan at Risen fly for a great deal on the backing, line, and reel. You are the man Ryan, thanks again. My first reel purchase in the middle of the mountains.

Like everyone else I had a great time at the Jam. Weather, water levels, bugs, and willing fish cooperated. Plus the best part is hanging out with old and new friends. And like every year, I continue to learn new ideas and tactics from a quite diverse group of PAFFers.

Here’s a few of the pics I took this weekend. A small side channel on the Little J which had about 10 trout rising in the area you can see, but I only missed them or put them down. A couple pics of a sulphur from Penns. Three pics of Penns trout with three different spot patterns. And a few pics from Sat night.

Just a great weekend all around.

John

Thanks for the kind words dc410, (flyers still suck.) We didn't even have to resort to Hank Patterson tactics.

LMAO!!! I had totally forgot about our little Hank Patterson hatch simulator discussion previous to the March Brown spinnerfall Saturday night on Penns. Good times indeed.

and..... as much as I really don't like the Penguins they do seem to be very effectively kicking Ottawa's a$$ tonight as I am typing this post.
