A Hard Day of Fishing
Friday night I made the 20 min. trip from my parents home to my brothers house. He lives at the Yellow Breeches, which is suppose to be some of the finest fly fishing in PA. When we got to his house I looked over his camper that he is redoing and then he had me get my fly rod out. He makes bamboo fly rods and they are beautiful, I asked for one but only time will tell if I get one. We then went out front for a quick prelesson of sorts, I believe he just wanted to call me an idiot a couple of times and laugh at me for my lack of fly casting skills. I forgive him though cause he is my brother and I know he was really proud of me for wanting to try and lets face it boys never seem to grow past that punch you on the shoulder cause they like you phase.
Saturday morning brought a lot of note taking and listening to stuff that made no sense to me. I didn't let on though, I smiled nodded and wrote my stuff down all the while thinking of what I would be planting next in my garden and what my dad was doing on the camper for the day. If you know me then you know I never really enjoyed this part of school, I get bored easily and I hate to sit still for too long.
After lunch we did some more practice casting and then went and spent two hours on the breeches. This by far was my favorite part, let it be known I will not be winning any awards for my world class casting any time soon. I had fun though getting back into the water, its been too long. Please excuse my crazy eyes in the photo, I was telling them what button to push when the snapped it, but you get the idea. This was after my fishing adventure. I had quite a few bites, but no luck of actually bringing one in. I will definitely go again whenever my hubbs can get some time to take me.
