A Grand Weekend Out

So I've been fishing relentlessly, pretty much since the season opened here in VT. I've also been near the point of psychosomatic rabies waiting for the ponds to clear. This weekend they did.

Pond 1 was ice free and, as far as I could tell, un-fished before me this season. About 10:30 it sprang to life. Nothing huge - all 11.5 to 13" but nicely shaped and good fighters. I caught around 20 of them, mostly on a damsel. The water temp was a surprisingly warm 43 degrees.

Today I went to pond 2. Water temperature was similar, as were the fish sizes. I did have one tremendous grab, which stripped the fly right off my leader. Might have been a Mermaid. We'll never know for sure.
