Spring Edition - 2012
One good thing about a flyfishing outing is that most times you come away with a good story, share a great a time with friends or relatives, enjoy great scenery and you generally always learn something no matter how many times you go. I know because this has always been the case with me.
Just a few years ago I had a single angler who wanted to experience the Jackson Rver in Bath County. I always get psyched up a little more when taking folks up there as the Jackson is as good as it gets in Virginia trout fishing. We took a long hiking trek in to one of my ''honey'' spots that May day. Caddis activity was very heavy this day and we started fishing upstream in a long section of riffle water. The dry #14 Tan Caddis started turning trout heads immediately and in a 300' section we caught and released over 40 colorful Rainbows and Browns in just a little bit. One was a big ole 5 pound hook jawed Rainbow. I told my guy that this was an exceptional time so enjoy it.
