A New Experience
Although I've been fly fishing for about fifteen years, I'm only about a year into my two-handed journey. We've had a lot of rain here in NC lately, so this evening I visited one of our trout streams that always fishes well in high water. It usually flows at about 100 cfs, but it was over 350 today. Instead of throwing streamers on a sink tip like I usually would, I got out the Echo Glass 10'6" 3 wt. and tied on a tube. After a half hour or so of no success, I switched over to a skated tube. On about my third cast, a decent brown rose to the surface and crushed it on the swing. He came unbuttoned after a few seconds, but it was a very neat thing to see. Probably not a big deal for most of you, but I was pleased. If you knew this stream, you'd probably be pretty pleased too.
