Going to keep this report short and sweet.
Went out fishing early in the morning, 5am.
Hurricane Irene was rolling up on PA, expected to start raining at 9am.
I was using some “biot free” Bead Head Prince flies I had tied up.
Valley Creek, I caught my first Brown Trout on the fly. This would be my only fish for the day.
This fish was awesome. He jumped, he stayed on the line, he delivered a once in a lifetime experience for me.
This is an over photoshopped photo of the fly I used. It did well. It deserved a hero pose photograph. It now rests comfortably in one of the trees at Valley forge National Park.
Valley Creek rocks. The weather held out until 11am. Although I didn’t catch anything else that day, one was enough.
Do you remember your first trout on the fly? Let us know in the comments below!
