"Mile" streams East of Erie, 29Dec2008

It was a day for the record books. 42 degrees in late Dec and no more snow to melt with rain swollen streams returning to normal flows.

I'm sure I hooked 50 fish yesterday, though I probably landed 20 or less. There were times I was hooking up with every cast. I decimated my Erie fly box. There are many steelhead adoned with fine jewelry from my box, and a few trees as well. Even with 2X tippet I was losing fish. I probably should have had the discipline to re-rig my tippet after every hook-up, but sadly I did not.

I fished with Squaretail and his entourage (two of his friends and his nephew). An excellent guide, Squaretail put his "clients" (me and his friends) on feeding fish all day long.

Sorry I have no pics for now. Hopefully Squaretail will have some to contribute when he gets back to his computer (He's fishing Erie again today, lucky dog!).

Large eggs and sucker spawn were doing well as were wooley buggers.

Alby:

Nice! As I left for work yesterday, I was wishing that I could have went up then
My buddy Mark and I decided not to go up today after the checking the forecast for Erie. High in the mid '30,s and 20 mph winds - with gusts up to 40mph. It also looked like there was some precip coming down up there this morning
Yeah, we're fair weather fisherman for sure I guess, but they'll be other chances.
We also both have long honey-do lists to work on, which is what I'll spend the rest of the day doing

I found a few pics from Monday on my phone. They aren't great pics, but hopefully they'll tide us over till Squaretail can post a few. These are two of my fish. The second was very fresh and silvery.

Both of these fish took a black wooley bugger.
