The essence of fly-fishing for me is the pursuit. This place is a hole I've always ended fishing on the last day of an extended day outing a number of times. This year, I arranged my route to spend the first night here, in pursuit of the large fish I've disturbed here during the day.
This beautiful over 20-inch Rainbow was caught and released on Neshannock Creek, W PA on Spider Wet Fly. He gives me unforgettable fight including up to the sky jumps and adrenaline pump and excitement. .
I recently spent a weekend camping on the Francis Branch. He is new to fly fishing and caught his first trout on the fly. We were fishing one morning and I looked back and thought "that looks like a picture" so I snapped a few photos.
