It’s been a while.
I went to a new spot today, somewhere I figured would have a lot of native trout.
Somewhere that I figured didn’t see a lot of anglers, despite how close it is to the city.
Well, I think I was right! Lots and lots of little speckled beauties all day long…
It was a nice day.
I probably should have packed it in an hour or so earlier than I chose to. You see, the time came to tie on some more tippet and a new fly, and after being on my feet in the water all day, I decided to have a seat. As I scrambled up the bank, apparently I crushed a nest belonging to some fairly laid back wasps, because, hey, all things considered, the swarming could have been a lot worse. But, “Ow!” just the same.
