Fishing close to Home with a member of the site

Hi All

Me and Hornberg (Brad)

Fishing close to Home with a member of the site

After a conversation with Brad (Hornberg) on the site he invited me to fish with him on Monday (April 22nd) in the afternoon.  I met up with Brad at his home in Sanbornville NH and we were off to the small stream he has fished before in the years past.  We arrived at the stream and did a short walk on a snowmobile trail to where we would start fishing and work our way back up stream.  We both started with nymphs, Brad with a small beadhead nymph and me with a small beat up pheasant tail nymph.  I managed the first fish, a very small wild

Brook Trout.  We fished several other good little runs but not much was happening.  Brad managed to see a few fish he spooked but hookups were not happening.  We finally came to a very nice looking piece of water and Brad tried it.  He had switched to Pheasant Tail nymph by then and I remarked that there should be something in that run.  Several drifts through and nothing then all of a sudden Brad hooked up with a

beauty.  Brad managed one more small Brook Trout but the fishing gods were not really with us today, I believe we are a little early with all the cold weather we are having.  So we left the small stream and checked out a few other spots, only fishing at one Horne Pond in Acton Maine.  It appears that the state of New Hampshire has not put any fish in the pond as of this time.  It will happen soon though.

Hope you liked the story and I have posted slide shows of the photo's below.

After my service time (4 years active) I went to collage and obtained a Masters degree in Forestry from UNH but never really worked as a forester other then to process data from other foresters using a program to calculate volume of standing timber. From there I became a self taught programmer in FORTRAN and have worked as a programmer for a manufacturing company then got into tech support now working as a test engineer for a small company that does contract work for Hewlett Packard. Lee's Fishing Page has grown from a simple site hosted by my internet provider to being hosted now by TotalChoiceHosting and being built with Geeklog and its many plugins. LFP is now on glFusion and I believe will be for the rest of time. I hope everyone likes the site and will contribute to it.

Nice story and some nice looking water.

Nice clear water like that, early in the season, bright clear day; you need to be sneaking up on those trout, just a tad spooky this time of year I'm finding.

I had a great time, just felt good to get out.  Even better that we got into a few fish even with it being so early in the season.  Next time I need more camo, mabye a ghillie suit even!
