A Crisp, Cool Sunday

Went fishing at Valley yesterday feeling renewed.  After a few weeks away and a stop in the Hershey area in-between, it was nice to be "home" again.

Water was nice and cool, as were the air temps beneath the canopy of trees lining the creek.  A nice escape from the 90+ degree weather we've been dealing with all week.

I brought 4 to hand with the 3-weight, but numbers weren't my concern.  On a day like this, worry stayed at home; contentment was my fishing partner.

  1. Looks like a good day! Valley is a beautiful little stream to fish and full of wild browns. Nice pics.

    Outstanding trout images and outdoor shots too. They had to be a blast on the 3wt. By the way it looks like you have my fly reel, don't you just love that little 2/3 Redington Drift. It is one of the lightest I have ever fished. Is that a Redington fly rod? Thanks for sharing

    Yes it is. Love that it's what I'd consider my "home" water.

    I was having the most luck with a modified beadheaded prince of my own design. I'm sure someone else has tied it before and it has a real name...maybe someday I'll post it.

    Yep. That pic was a group of 3 riders...didn't want to blatantly snap pics. They were some beautiful horses.

    I'm enjoying my Redington outfit quite a bit. The reel is on a 7'6" Redington Classic Trout. Rod isn't too fast or too slow.

    They didn't shrink...these are native browns, left the pig rainbows in the Quittie!
