Yeah...that about covers the targets thing.
Two really cool things today. One, I fished with Ryan. He has been coming to presentations and corresponding with me for a while, and we finally hit the water together today. With a new baby on the way (congrats Ryan!) fishing time can be tough...glad it worked out. And two...I fished an Orvis Superfine Glass Rod. Incredibly FUN to fish that 5 wt...will write more on it later but the best way to describe it is FUN! Not going to replace my H2 as a tool, but I will find a way to chase small carp with this thing often. Great fun.
As for the fishing...they are starting to wake up! I had already caught around 85 fish this year, but maybe one or two actually pulled line from the reel. They woke up today, spooked, ran, fought a bit...it was pretty nice. It is only going to get better from here!
I caught my fill on hybrids, and Ryan did well also...sticking fish on a combination of hybrids and San Juan worms. The sun beat down and the fish were active...Ryan even stuck his first mirror! The season is here folks! Get out there, find any water that will be a few degrees warmer than the surrounding water and take a peak! Thanks again for a fun day Ryan!
