An awe Inspiring Double Rainbow...  And Some Fishing

Grub Fly Patterns - Experimental

While I haven’t gotten around to posting the fishing mayham that was last weekend’s outing with my mom, I will tell you we caught a lot of fish.  I’ll also tell you there was a downside to our method…  GRUBS.

East Branch Perkiomen Creek Fishing Report 5-22-2011

I did some fly fishing on the East Branch of the  Perkiomen Creek this afternoon. Although the weather report was calling for rain, the afternoon remained dry, somewhat warm, and even sunny at times. I decided to try my luck on a new section of the creek that I hadn’t fully explored before.  I tied on a black wooly […]
