27 Aug Report - Been A While


Recommended Posts

Due to multiple issues, I went trout fishing for the first time in five or six years.  I decided it was time to get back on the horse and drove 3 hours to the Ozarks.  I felt it was too hot for my favorite wild trout creeks so I went to Montauk.  Channeling my deceased fishing partner and father, I had my best trout park day ever.  I like to think he sent a fish or two my way.  However it was bitter sweet using some of his gear... reminds me that he is both gone and with me.  

I also started Tenkara fishing this day (for trout).  I ended up with a double digit day.  My best three flies were a disco midge, yellow crackerback, and an parachute adams.  I caught equal amounts on the crackerback on top and pulled under.  I have to be honest... I wasn't expecting much from the tenkara rod, but it was deadly on this trip.  I would even follow someone out of hole and catch a couple.  I think it had to do with no drag and no fly line hitting the water.  I ended up fishing from 10-6.  It was better in the morning, but I caught fish all day.  

Tight lines all.

Glad you got back on the horse mic.
