Afternoon run 12/19/2008

Well I made a quick run down to Roaring River this afternoon. I got there about 11:30. There were maybe 30 fishermen on the river. I started down in the fly area. The river is running a little lower right now. The fish are doing the scatter moves. You cast around a group of fish and they scatter!!! There were three people down in the fly area. Not a lot of big fish down there. I caught five fish and went up around the lodge. Gary Bates was there. We talked a while. The fish were hungry up there. I started catching a lot of small ones which is still fun. About everywhere I stopped I caught a few fish. I went around by the falls and caught a bunch! I missed a hog big time. He swam right up and bit the Killer worm and I set the hook and nothing!!! Bummer!!! I ended up catching about 30+ fish and had a blast. The weather was nice for this time of year. 40'S and partly sunny. Sold two rods in two days. Thanks!!!!

Friday 5th RR

Went down to RR on Friday. Kind of dissapointing. Lots of kids in waiders walking around. The fish were shell shocked!!! The fly would hit the water and the fish would head for the hills!!!! Didn't make it down until 12:00. Had to work, bummer!
