Gotta love wet wading and dry flies in November!

First fish of the day:



A couple more:





Always a good sign:



I think I'll hit MP of LP before I head north tomorrow.

WVB,
Did you happen to check water temp while you were up there? How was the water level? I would hope that it had receeded some by today. You sure picked a beautiful day to be out.

Troutman,
The rod is a 6ft 2wt bamboo, built on a Nunley taper by a good friend of mine in WV. I have it lined with 1wt line and an 8" brookie feels really nice on it!

nvr2L8,
I didn't check the water temp, I would guess somewhere around 45. It was cold enough to put chill your feet but not cold enough to keep them from rising to a dry.

Also, I thought I was out in Yellowstone as I was coming down from Chimney Tops! There was a black bear off on the hillside and traffic was backed up a good 1/2 mile both directions. AND...just like Yellowstone folks were getting a little too close - just to get a photo.

Chris

Nice specs. Beautiful fish.

I see you're in Florence. Me too. Small world for sure.
