C&O Canal Fishing
by Vic Velasco
Living in Northern Virginia, access to the Potomac and it's tributaries makes for decent fishing. I went to fish the C&O Canal yesterday (Saturday) to try and set a hook into a few carp. I lost two flies after the carp broke me off (I didn't bring my heavier tippet - only the light stuff I have in my tenkara bag), but with the blue sabiki fly, I brought in ten + bluegill. I only took pictures of two of them (I love catching bluegill, but it does become repetitive after a while). The other picture is of one of the carp before it ran off with my fly (non-blue, pink squirmy wormy fly).

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
