Default First Cast

Went fishing on the Big Hunting Creek in MD today, long car ride from my house. Anyway, first cast of the day into a beautiful pool brings up this 11"-12" hard fighting wild brown. These wild brownies on this river are BEAUTIFUL, the photo does not do these fish justice. Anyway, took him on a #20 griffith's gnat.

Not photogenic at all. lol

Great looking fish Nater!!!

Catching a fish on the first cast is always a motivator that gets you tuned in on the task at hand. Hope you continue sending pics and stories of your adventures.

What a way to start your day Nate! It seems that everywhere is a long ride these days but yours was worth while.

Congratulations,

Ard

Looks like a great stream with some eager fish. Those are the best kind and worth a bit of a drive!

Couple more, 6 or 7. I didn't count. Probably 3 browns and 3 rainbows. None were as big.
