Default Trout Pics...Caught on my New Bamboo

After stopping by the Sporting Gentleman fly shop to look at the dozens of
bamboo rods they have, we stopped by Ridley Creek to have a go at the
trout with our new Lew Parks 7' 4wt split cane rod. The section I fished
was ff'ing only/catch and release, so I decided to show them something they
might not have seen a zillion times in the past few months. I decided on a
#16 Chan's Chronimid (gold bead, white antron gills and tail section, peacock
herl throax, and red thread body), and they starting taking it pretty quick!

We have caught plenty of crappie, bluegill, and perch on the bamboo rod
in the past 10 days, but these are the first trout. It was a splendid outing . My wife didn't fish (strained her ankle wading yesterday), but
she served as cameraman.
