The wind, a small spring creek, and wild trout.

  Well, Got out today for some flying. I headed on over to Pa, and to my second favorite spring creek.  The wind was blowing, but the air was mild. The trout were biting well, there was a minor midge hatch, but not enough to get the fish going. I nymphed the afternoon away. The trout were very eager to take the high test hares ear, I put  a zug bug as trailer about half way through the stretched i fished. The zug bug was a killer today.  I have no clue why this fly is being forgotten. It never lets me down and its easy to tie.  The take for the U.V. high test were gentle, but the zug got crushed every take.   I was happy to get a trifecta. I always enjoy the beauty of each trout i catch, so i do take a lot of pictures.  Well i fished to about 4 and covered a good mile of creek. I "caught more than four" and was quite satisfied with my catch and the beauty of this little gem of a stream.
The start of the Journey.
