Nice Day In WNC
by Jeff M.
A couple of things came together ... I got my Daiwa LT39SF from Chris and Mother Nature delivered a beautiful 50F day. Decided to break-in the new rod. Water flow was still high (2.5 times normal), but fishable. Had a strike on the first cast, but missed it. Went on to catch 6 (10-12") and one nice 16"! The rod worked great, but the weather forecast doesn't look too good for the next several weeks!
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
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.
