Class 1 skunking
Went out Sunday and got a Class 1 whipping. no fish. no bites. nada. I was able to have a great hike, practice, and hang with a friend who was trying out his fly rod for the first time.
the lucky guy got an EagleClaw Glass 5/6 combo with an older Orvis reel, line etc, for $40 at a yardsale. Friggin deal and a half. Did I mention the outfit was brand new, with the plastic still on the reel seat? frickin deal for him! I think he got the swing of it, we used stoneflies and some flash-back copper ribbed beadheads in 14-16
Between the two of us, I think the trees got at least 6 flies. bad day.
On a Lighter side..... I ordered a new rod today... should wet it this weekend, post to follow.
