Glad to hear he only got two stings for his troubles. Nasty little buggers when they get riled up. Could tell almost the same story minus the stings. I got lucky a few weeks back on Middle Prong. Hooked a branch on the back cast and gave a couple of yanks. Turned around and noticed a nest just a bit smaller than that one on the branch next to the one my fly was in. I could my Yellow Sally outta the tree and beat it up the creek.
