Default Tuesday Evening Fishing

Beautiful evening fishing, and as Ant just said in another thread; "Any day you get a line wet is a good day".

This is the view from where I was fishing tonight. The beaver lodge I usually fish close to is just out of the picture to the left at the head of the pond.

Managed to hook a couple of nice trout, in spite of their fussiness tonight. Both were caught on a #14 Mosquito. I tried a couple of nymphs (one was a # 12 beadhead with which I was having issues) before the wind dropped off, and then a Coachman & a Black Gnat which were unproductive as well

Sorry for the crappy picture, wifey's camera and I'm not used to the settings.

There was a guy on the other sid of the pond who was struggling a bit with his fly rod, and I went to meet him before leaving. I gave him a couple of hints, which you guys had given me, and he was thrilled and was a little peeved 'cause it was getting dark and he was really enjoying his success. He asked how I learned so much in a few weeks, and I gave this board and the members plenty of credit for their knowledge, patience, and willingness to help and answer noob questions. He asked I pass on his thanks.

The bad side of tonight was when I was walking back to the car, through thich brush over my head, I lost my fly boxes. Well, back to the shop tomorrow.
