Unless you count suckers and a very pretty pumpkin seed. It's been years since that happened. On the plus side I saw 6 deer, 3 mink, and some very cool birds so it was still a good day outdoors.

Fishing the wrong stream...I guess you were on the Tully.

You recognized the good in being out, rather than dwelling on not getting any trout. That's a big plus. We'd all rather catch fish, but should be able to enjoy our outings when we don't.

Good for you and I hope your next outing includes some success.

Thinking I should give up fly fishing and take up trapping. That other creek would be the Manny?

I hooked into two monsters on the Tully on Sat., one spit the hook after about a 10 second fight and the second I must have fought for at least ten minutes before my fishing buddy decided to help me land it and all he did was spook it and it broke off.....it was quite possibly the most beautiful and strongest fighting trout I've ever hooked in PA, looked like a rainbow you'd find in the San Juan. The way that thing fought and the coloring it had makes me think it's been in there for a couple years at least.

Got 13 of the 19 trout I hooked up with to accomodate my net Sunday. Lost 6, which I had never done before. BH Pheasant size 12 or 14 worked great.

P.S. If you call it practice you never get skunked.
