Well, what can I say...another day of housework, fly tying, rod building and organizing for tomorrow's clients left me with mere MINUTES to fish!

I had to get to school, grade portfolios and give a final, but I wasn't going to skip out on fishin. I probably put in all of 45 minutes, trying deperately to hook up, concentrating on the casting lines that have produced so much in the last week. It's interesting how certain spots, unseen from the shore, must have fish holding features underneath that make them the "fish hotels" within' casting distance - probably 90% of my hits come from the same couple spots. Of course, this time around would find me with NO HITS...maybe I should have tried the other side of the dock?!
