Re: It was WORK & was worth it

Welcome to trout fly fishing snobs 101 my friend :o . Most fly fisherman are that breed. You should see the look on some of the guys face sometimes when I switch up from fly rod to spin rod.

Re: It's 18 degrees outside...time to start thinking about hatches

Nice, broski. Did you hook into the trout at the end of the drift or on the swing? Big hit came just as I was lifting to recast. Made me jump. Short, slow strips across the end of a pool brought another up. [/quote] Its the color scheme!!! Oldy but a goodie...under used and almost forgotten...nice ...

It's a summer job. Did you expect $50/hr.? :)
