Elk river West Virginia
We had a great time fishing yesterday catching, losing and missing many fish. It was my nephews first time to fly fish so I hired a guide for the day. Dave Breitmeier is his name and Elk Springs resort is the place. I didn't take many fish pictures but we did get a couple of nicer fish and lost a couple nice ones. This is a very nice river and the rise in the evenings can be really amazing. We experienced a taste of that around dusk. Check it out if you get the chance and drop in the fly shop for the latest fishing info.

We were using size 20 and smaller flies for most of the day. Size 32 spinner at dusk. I don't use flies that small where I normally fish so I had a couple of break offs with that size 8 tippet. I usually use sizes 4,5, and 6 tippet and kept forgetting I had on light tippet.
