Weekend Trout Fishing With A Buddy
This past weekend a buddy and I took to the river and hooked up with a whole lot of trout. Okay, to be honest - My buddy hooked into a bunch, I was more of an observer barely holding my own.
My buddy is a spin fisherman more accustom to bass than trout. Even with the constant encouragement to give the fly a try he remains a die-hard spin man. Unfortunately that limits some of the water he is able to fish so I went flipping through at a few books I had on the fly tying desk on SC waters looking for a good stream to fish. Eventually I came across a section of river I had never fished.
Throughout the day my buddy was hooking into a whole lot of stocked fish while I watched with slight envy but still happy we were catching fish. I eventually found a hole and hooked into a handful of very clean brooktrout on deep midges, SanJauns, and Killer Bugs.
In the end we left the stream happy and dehydrated. On the way back to the jeep we even managed to grab a few beat-up stocked trout for supper. At home, over beers and broiled trout, we reminisced with our family and friends over a great day on the water.
Good by winter blues and hello Spring Fishing!
