|The Start of a Fly Fisherman|
those mid 70 temps cool down a little. My brother in law had wanted to try his hand at fly
fishing so on the way over had stopped and picked up a starter kit by Pflueger. We took everything out strung it up got
him a few flies ready and were out the door on on the water.
I struck the first evening by throwing a big streamer
and was rewarded with a big fat 20 inch rainbow.
TJ took the first evening getting comfortable with the fly
rod and casting and such but no fish the first evening.
|Those First Fish on the Fly|
The next day he tied on an olive woolybugger and went after smallies. The hookset was on and he was into fish in no time. Gave The wife the 3wt and let her chuck flies for a little while as well. Its always nice to see new people take up a passion for fly fishing and land there first fish on a fly and get that desire to catch more fish and keep fishing harder and harder! Sometimes a trip is not always about the fish you catch but the waters you share with others and the excitement they get out of the trip. It turned out to be a great trip and a nice getwaway. Harman's offers some nice cabins that have room for everyone and the peace and quiet you sometimes need for a trip to get away to. They have 20 cabins overall 18 with very easy access to there stretch of stocked water. Several cabins have hot tubs, wi-fi and some of the nicest porches to relax on! Harman's has always been a friend of WVAngler and look forward to another nice trip back to there waters with the wife. The stretch of water there is teaming with great sized trout always ready for your offering if the water gets to warm there smallmouth are in pretty good numbers even some nice sized ones in the mix. Plans are already being made to get on the water again and the passion is growing for sure! The addiction continues!!
