This is my daughter McKayla. When she was 12 or 13 years, I tried to take her fly fishing....but after a couple trips, I decided we would have a better time in the boat, lake the years pass, I realized recently I never really taught my daughter (of all people) how to fly this last week our schedules meshed and we when trout fishing....after a quick casting lesson on the lawn we headed out to have a fun morning on the creek...

One fish, two fish, Silver Fish, Gold Fish...

The Trout fishing in southern Vermont continues to be excellent! We will need to start to switch to morning mode here soon as the days get warmer....still fishing dead drift deep, swinging down and across, stripping streamers and throwing dries on occasion...

The fish are wet, they do not care if its raining. We had a GREAT DAY yesterday! My new clients Boone and Cathy hammered them and fun was had by all....well except for a bunch of Rainbows and Browns that we had our way with.
We caught them swinging wets down and across, we caught using indicators....we caught casting across and stripping....WE CAUGHT WELL....GREAT DAY!
