Christmas present

I went down to Taney today to see what was going on. Stopped by the shop and got myself a christmas present the Orvis Battenkill Mid Arbor for my 8wt. CV2. With some Sci-Angler XXD line. Man that this is beautiful it casts like a dream. didnt have my waders or anything with me so I just fished from the bank and caught a 14 in bow and a 16 in brown on a scud. They turned one on just about 5 min after we got there. hope to get down soon when Jonny gets back but probably wont be down again till after Christmas.

Taney yesterday

I went down to Taney yesterday to see what was going on and because i didnt have much else to do. When i got there they were running 1 generator and had been since 11am. I walked the bank between 2 and 3 and didnt see any fish of any size. but i did manage to catch 2 rainbows none of any size though. Those would be the only fish i would catch the rest of the day and i left about 6 and came home because they turned on 4 and it wasnt worth staying and fishing in the dark.

A River Runs Through It Deluxe

Just when you thought that you'd heard the end of all the Traditional Flyfisherman bashing this movie, Columbia comes out with a deluxe version of the 1992 Brad Pitt film. I'll have to admit, this is one of my favorite moveis, but the book is way better. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000BBOUEK/flyfishmgazin-20?creative=327641&camp=14573&link_code=as1
