Default Browns and Bows

They restocked most of the central PA creeks...... my local was stocked yesterday.
I have to be honest and say that I was a little worried about the fishing here in central PA. Big decline in smallmouth bass, the Flats were horrible for stripers for the last several years. Rock Bass are almost gone, and Sunfish are 5% of what they were before.
But trout are still stocked in the cool local creeks.
I've been telling you all about the wonderful time I have been having with my 1wt flyrod.
Rain again today, but we really need the rain, and I caught 27 beautiful trout with my home made flies! #16 BH soft hackle microbuggers were the ticket.
It doesn't get any better than that! About 6 other guys fishing in the rain today. I don't want to brag, but..... I was catchin' more trout than the Roostertail and Powerbait boys!! I just might become a good fly fisherman some day!
Last pix for a while, I don't want to bore you guys with little trout every day. I keep a photo library with all the fish I catch. Very nice when viewed on my bigscreen TV in the middle of winter.

Cheers

Isnt it great catching fish on your own flies. There is soemthing about fooling a fish to start withm but when you do it on a fly or lure you made its really great, keep at it, you look like your allready geting to be a pretty good flyfiehrman

FlyRichardFly: Sounds like you are in the zone and doing it with your own flies, it doesn't get any better than that. Enjoy the fishing!

Richard,

Good to hear you're making good use of rainy days. They were far and away the most productive for me in Pa. I wouldn't worry about boring anyone with pictures of fish dude, post away.

We haven't gotten over to Pa much this spring. Hopefully this weekend will get us started and we'll be getting there more often. Continued good luck. I keep thinking of getting a 2 wt rod. You're not making it any easier to resist.
