Spring Session 5, The Dark star shines.

  Well got out today for some flying once Josh and I finished the fly lesson. I went and hit my local spring creek in hopes of some rising trout.  It was a blue bird day with some wind and with low gin clear water. Needless to say the fishing was tough. I certainly spooked more than i caught today, but that's just how it goes on the local spring creek on days like these.  I started off with the Hendrickson Nicheo, drifting at some occasional risers I notice while making my way to the water.  The trout didn't want anything to do with it.  So I watched for a moment or two. I notice some caddis here and there and the occasional bwo, but the bwos went untouched down the run.  I figured I would give the Dark Star a shot. First cast and fish on.  A quick photo and then a release, and I was back to drifting the Dark Star. I managed another before I lost my second Dark Star and realized I was running late for dinner!
