Lefty doesn't fish much anymore.....

Default I seriously hate to admit it...

Though I never saw anyone using dynamite...
I did see my Grandfather use the old wind up "telephone" in a few farm ponds, he would then go and sell his catch out the back of his truck.

There seemed to always be a lot of grain on the ground when we went Dove hunting too....hmmmm I'm beginning to see a pattern forming here...

When I was a little kid, a guy stopped by the farm asking for Dad's vote in the upcoming election for constable, magistrate, something...He had no right hand. My brother and I couldn't stop staring. My Dad told us he blew it off dynamiting for fish on the Kentucky River. Later my Dad was dynamiting a rocky area to build a cattle shute. I told him not to, he'd never be able to fish again. He laughed a lot at that, then blew up about 5 feet of ground/rock/etc with 1/2 stick of TNT. Very impressive to a kid. The Fourth of July always seemed a little tame after that.

Never seen anyone use TNT but some have tryed M-80s. I have been told they work pretty good. All joking aside just hang in there. Fly fishing is like other sports the more you do it the better you get. It took me a long time to catch a fish in the park with a fly rod and flies. I still remember that day. It was a small Rainbow hooked on a Male Adam on the left prong of Greenbrair.

May God Bless You...

Bill,

Thanks for the encouragement. I will give it another try in the Fall once it cools off and the river level is up.

Chicken!!

If you stick with it and get yourself one of these skittish mountain trout in skinny water, you'll be hooked on mountain trout for life!!

They're there... trust me.
