The First of 2010

Today Beaver and I left Bruceton Mills at 7 AM with no real destination other than a county in WV. We arrived at a popular tourist destination to fish a popular tributary of an even more popular river. We fished a few holes with no luck early in the morning and decided it would be best to head for the bigger highland river. We were met with sunshine, gin clear water, ample flow, and last but certainly not least, fantastic February temperatures of 45plus degrees. We both strung up the rods and rigged up with bead head nymphs, and wooly buggers. Well it wasn't too long before "the Beav" and I both were hooked up with some beautiful Rainbows. We spent the rest of the afternoon high sticking pocket water, nymphing long smooth glides and pools with indicators, and catching over 2 dozen Rainbows, 2 Fall Fish, and 1 big stocked Brookie. Wooly Buggers, Glo bugs, and Beadhead Nymphs seamed to be the ticket today. Depsite a late start, it was a fantastic day to start off the new year.
