I'm not a good fisher, but I'm getting better. I can manage 2 or 3 trout in a couple hours at Codorus, always on nymphs. I saw some sulphers in the air last saturday evening but didn't want to give up on my nymphs. I saw some fish breaking the surface so I decided to try a dry. By the time I got a sulpher tied on and started casting I could not see my fly on the water, because of the darkness. Couldn't even see my line anymore. But I made a few casts and I heard a splash and I knew. I lifted my rod and I had a fish. Small brown, but my first on a dry this year. Anyone ever have moments like that?

On the same creek, I cast to rising trout while Maurice stood 8 feet higher on the bank and told me when to lift. I think I took a couple that way, probably after a drubbing all afternoon.

Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!... Our brethren are already in the field! It is in vain... to extenuate the matter...but as for me, Give Me Liberty or give me death.

I was fishing a local creek this past Sunday. I've just started fly fishing this season. I ended up catching two nice browns, and a rainbow. I was very grateful to catch one brown on a dry! But, I caught three. I was just so so thrilled. I was all a lone on the creek. When I hooked my first fish, and as I was going for the grab on the fish. I was just saying "YES!" over, and over! I was just thinking in my head if anyone were to be strolling past for some odd reason. They would think I am insane! I was absolutely thrilled! Not to mention I've just started to wade. I was standing off the side of a deep hole facing downstream for a while just scouting the area up ahead. The next thing I knew two trout were swimming up stream a few inches from me. I was standing completely still, just looking and I caught them out of the corner of my eye. To be that close to the two trout. I was just in a complete state of happiness. I couldn't even explain the feeling to ya man. :)
