4-19-2010 fishing

I was able to make it out again today. Fishing was slow, but as always its nice to get out. I fished only with my 11' Iwana again, I am really digging this rod.

I hiked along this stream:

To reach this tributary:

That turns out to look like this:

I caught a few of these:

There were some of these in the air:

I found a bunch of fiddlehead ferns and collected enough cotton off of them to tie about a 100 flies. Now I just need to wait for it to dry and change color.

That is beautiful country--my wife and I spent a summer at Cornell a few years back and I really was fascinated by those slate-substrate streams. Unfortunately it so happened that y'all were in the middle of a heat wave and a drought, so I left most of your trout relatively unmolested--glad to see you're making good use of the current conditions. :)

Beautiful water and scenery. Those are some nice little trout in that tributary too. They are much like the fish we catch in the East and West Forks of the San Gabriel river near L.A. I'd be interested in seeing the flies you tie with the fiddlehead fern cotton you collected. I didn't know the fern had cotton that was collectable. Very cool idea!

Its something I learned using google translation to go thru Japanese tenkara blogs. I believe its common over there.

Beautiful scenery. Except for the lack of rhododendron, I thought your were catching those brookies in the North Carolina mountains. Nice photography. Thanks.
