Chain Bridge Recon
There has been some internet buzz within the Tidal Potomac fly fishing community around some recent Shad catches along the Potomac - so I took a couple of hours to check out the spots and get ready for some fishing. I checked this spot first - the Virginia side of Chain Bridge. When I finally got to the river's edge, there was a ripping current, not a place where I think a flyline would do well. This spot has had some history attached to it (if you can read the picture of the sign). Maybe in the summer when the water level is lower (and running slower).
