Before the Snow
Yesterday (Sunday) I got out to fish the dropping tide at 4 Mile Run. Barclay Glass 3wt, RIO Perception line and a Killer Bug (with red crystal flash eviscerated innards tail and a tungsten bead head) fly, some quiet time and focus on making good solid casts - yielded a ton of hook ups and fights, with Bluegill. I probably caught 50 of these guys - and each one was a blast. I did manage to mix it up and brought some greenies and pumpkinseeds to hand as well as a couple of other surprises, but that for the next few posts. What a nice way to bring about some serenity (I've said this before - the meditative effects of flyfishing are not as intense as surfing, but it is very fulfilling in a much different way).
