Spent a few hours at the river this afternoon. I managed to catch a total of 43 but only three of them were smallies. I lost one other smallie. The fishing was hard but I got out and enjoyed myself. That is what fly fishing is all about. Its not always about what you catch. I think at times we, as fly fishermen, forget that. It really is about the quiet time and the journey. Catching fish is just a bonus. I managed more panfish then smallies but as stated it was all good.
