I returned to fly fishing in 2015 after amost 20 years of pursuing a different hobby. First time out I connected with a couple of medium sized brookies but they could have been giants as the adrenalin burst was huge. Pardon the pun, but I was hooked again! I started upgrading rods, reels, line, waders and got back into tying flies.
I have a small brook near me where there were (were, as the drought last year almost completely dried the brook up ) plenty of small native brookies. I had a ball with my 2 wt. Went after larger rainbows etc. and enjoyed the time out on the streams and the thrill of a good fish tugging at the line.
This past season I purchased a Kayak and hit the local ponds for bluegill and Crappie on the 2 wt. and Bass on the 6wt. in order to just be fishing as the low levels in the streams and rivers around here weren't good for productive fishing. Well, that was a blast too! Looking to go after some Pike this season.
Hoping the water levels stay up for some good trout fishing again.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was
cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time.
On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words,
and some of the words are theirs.
