Default back after a long break

Haven't been fishing or on the forum for a couple months or so.
The local lake where I do 90% of my fishing got too weedy to fish this summer (low water & hot temps), and the creeks were really suffering from the drought so I diverted my free time to other hobbies for a couple months.

Today it was more like fishing weather (light rain & cool) so I drove to the lake for a look. The weeds have receded quite a bit, so I grabbed the 3wt from behind the truck seat (it never lost it's place even if I wasn't using it daily), tied on a #12 nymph (of my own design), and made a few casts. The TFO 3wt still felt good in my hand and I was getting good distance & accuracy despite the stiff breeze.
Got one crappie (about 8") and one LM bass (about 12") in about 1/2 hour of fishing. Not too big of fish, and the action was slow, but it sure felt good to be catching fish on the fly rod again!

Mike: I understand that the drought has made fishing in some areas pretty bleak, congrats on the recent outing!
