Home Waters

The Far-and-Fine on Home Waters



Had a chance today to get the Far-and-Fine out on the home waters of Fishing Creek. Always nice to get back up home. It was an odd day in several ways. The weather was perfect, I caught fish & I saw only one other fisherman on the water the entire day. 



It was also the first time christening the new net from Steven's Nets. Nothing but good things to say. I picked up the Model 27R and it is one of the finest nets I have found. Exceptional craftsmanship at a fraction of the cost of the Brodins found practically everywhere, yet these are built right here in the USA. The highest recommendation.




Started out the day on Nick's Run about 8am. Nothing happening in the pools, but the runs in between gave up two nice Browns. This one an even 16". Both fish came on a Squirrels Nest Nymph.


Moved upstream around 10am to mayfly meadows. Found fish in the pocket water upstream, with fish willing to take the C2C nymph.


Upstream of May Fly Meadows




The pockets brought a good number of fish, all about like the above. Aggressive and energetic on the line.



I hit the Orangeville Run last, about 12 noon. and while it took me a while to figure them out, things paid off with the nicest fish of the days.



This 17" fish took an M&M nymph as a dropper under a Squirrels Nest



This 18" Rainbow took a Golden Retriever. Once again, the Golden retriever brings the largest fish of the day.



When your backdrop is Fishing Creek, somehow it's always a good day on the water.

See you on the water!
