With an opportunity to hit the Tulpehocken for a quick 2 hours who could resist? Unfortunately for us, the recent rains did not help. While the water elsewhere was clear if a bit high, upstream on the Tully they were releasing water, turning the water a dull green and sending a lot of debris downstream. That in no way took anything away from the perfect morning, and a chance to share time on the water with a good friend and a new rod.
The signs of fall after a long hot summer
This was also the first chance to get the new Boo on some trout water. Although I was unable to bring a fish to hand on the morning, I was able to get a sense of how the rod performs. It lays out a beautiful loop with dries and light nymphing. I could not be more pleased. The Lulbegrud Creek PH Young Perfectionist is exactly as it's name implies.
Yours truly enjoying the a new rod, while searching the waters for a fish willing to sacrifice itself for the cause.
Chris on the other hand had other ideas. As once again, the Golden Retriever saved the day for the only fish brought to hand.
