A Fish Story

The story / remembrance you are about to read is based on actual events, no names were changed to protect the innocent

One early morning while fishing Spring Creek in Pennsylvania I was having what I would call reasonable results and had managed a few pretty nice brown trout. All of the fish caught were of good size, however my fishing partner of about 20 years at that time had caught nothing. I offered him a fly of my design 'The Answer' but he declined....

We Don't Get This Way Overnight;

You will have to read part two also to get the whole story. The site allows only so many words per page here and most of my stories don't make the cut

This story is taken from an old thread here on the forum. Threads have a tendency to get buried over the years and sometimes I dig one out and read it. I was always mesmerized by water, rivers, creeks, even a good hard runoff after a thunder storm provided a miniature river for me to explore. I graduated from throw lines to a spin...

Part Two;


At nearly a dead run I headed back to the car to get my fly rod, the moment of truth was soon to be at hand. There were definitely fish here! As fast as I could I assembled the two piece rod and fastened one of those big fat creations of mine to the end of my leader. Quickly I made my way back down the path through the little meadow to the water.

Sure enough they were still there and God, they both had a fish on! I waded in downstream of the woman....

Just Remembered This; Sometimes You Gotta Work With What You've Got

I just read a post from Pocono that brought this post I made back to my memory. Things have a way of getting buried in the thousands of threads on the board so I'm posting it here in case you naver ran across it. I'll find a picture of the rod and edit it in soon.

*On a Thursday evening in late June of 2010 I made a phone call to a man who runs a barge business on the rivers here in the MatSu Valley. I hadn't heard from him for awhile and with this being the busy season I figured...

My Life From River to River;

Every year trying to intercept the salmon as they travel up the rivers here becomes a sort of problem. Actually it's more of a fixation than a problem and it takes control of my mind and therefore my life every year. I'll try to say this so you all can relate to what has happened over the years.

I have lived in several places, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Virginia, Colorado and Alaska. The bulk of time was spent in Pennsylvania with just 2 years in Georgia, 2 in Virginia, and one in Colorado....
