    Another great Penns Creek outing!

    My daughter and I missed our trip last year as I was working in Tel Aviv so we were really looking forward to this year. We left Thursday morning and arrived at the Feathered Hook around noon. As always, Jonas and his staff welcomed us and got us settled in our rooms. We headed out and fished Tunnel Road from 3pm until dark. There were a few risers late in the evening but all the hook-ups were on Nymphs.

    On Friday we started out where Cherry Run dumps into Penns and fished our way up stream the entire day. We caught 16 - 20 fish between the two of us, mostly browns except for two rainbows. I casted to a couple risers early in the day but could not get them to take a dry.

    Euro Nymphing was the order of the day - I realize the purists are pulling their hair out right now but it flat catches fish!

    Saturday we decided to change it up - we floated the lower Penns for smallmouth. Second cast my daughter hooks and lands a 24' Walleye - sorta set the tone for the day! We caught smallies stripping both streamer / clouser patterns as well as on the surface with poppers.

    So now I am researching and studying this whole Euro Nymphing strategy! As usual, I'm late to the game... been reading about it for awhile but never paid much attention to it - I am paying attention now!

    When Jonas and Matt explained it to me my first thoughts were - its just what we called "high-sticking" in the old days.. Except they are using 11ft 3wt rods and... wait for it.. flies tied on the competition style "jig" hooks. The upturned hook along with the sensitivity of an 11ft 3wt makes detecting a fish much easier....
