One that got away
Took out another beginner, solo this time - it was a birthday gift from her sister. She finally caught on that you don 't have to overpower the cast to get the fly out to where the fish are. After sending her on her way in between a few raindrops, I checked out the FFO section below the lake dam on the Newfound River. Got two LL salmon, about 10 inches, a brooktrout, rainbow and a smallmouth, all on nymphs. Plenty of caddis, but no rises. Hopefully the rain showers will cool things off and the hatchery truck will pay a visit this week. Water temp was 66F, and should go a little lower with cool nights and rain in the forecast, although the water level is very low.
