Today I left work at about 2:15pm, and decided since there was litterally nothing else to do today, I thought why not go fishing. I headed home, quickly gathered my waders, boots, and the trusty Sir D bamboo rod and beat feet over to a quiet little wild brown stream. I decided to tie on a #8 olive/brown wooly bugger. I started in the bottom of a fairly large run, only to drag the bottom with nil results. This negativity continued on for the next hour or so until I finally added too much split shot and subsequently got hung up. I made the executive decision that it was high time to quit and make like a tree and leaf. No fish harmed, hooked or spotted today, but I did snap a few pictures.

Austin and I left Hinton southbound for Pearisburg, VA with the intentions of finding some quality weather and time well spent on a quaint little trout stream that is nestled in the mountains of VA and emties into the New River. This particular trout stream is teeming with native brook and wild rainbow trout. After we left the parking lot, we began the walk up the trail and started fishing after about a 20 minute hike. Soon after that, we started picking up a few fish here and there. I caught 7 brookies and 1 rainbow and Austin caught about the same. All fish brought to hand were caught on either an olive wooly bugger or a black/chart. trout magnet.
