Rediscover Home Waters

I found a gentle slope down torepparttar river, and with little effort was throughrepparttar 146867 brush. After just a couple of casts I had landed a nice 14-inch fat salmonfly stuffed redside. And a few minutes later another one. Moving up river and down river just 20 feet or so, produced a couple of more. Catching fish is exciting, catching fish in a new spot or new technique is more exciting.

I have been back three times, and except forrepparttar 146868 last time, when I missed two strikes, I have landed nice fish.

The lesson here though, is you can never know everything about a place. Nature changes too much. Perhapsrepparttar 146869 underlying surface had just changed last winter during a high water spell and created this up till now undiscovered fishing spot. Or perhaps it had been there for years, I don't know. But you can bet it has spurred my pioneering spirit, for me to keep looking for new ways and new spots to fish my home waters. And when I tire of exploring I have a whole repotoire of fishing spots and techniques to revisit like old friends.
