Pond Birthday

I always try to take my birthday off to go fishing, somewhat of an annual ritual. This year I did a quick overnight to one of my favorite ponds. It's not exactly a secret place but does turn out nice, chunky brookies.

It turns out they like a new dragonfly nymph pattern I've been working on. And at night, looking into the water there were lots of them near the shore - no wonder!

happy birthday! looks like a great trip. between this and wb's post looks like a few of us are getting in to fish, good to see the forum going again.

I got out to my first pond trip of the season this morning. when you coach girls, prom day is like a holiday and a day off so i took off first thing this morning. i learned i shouldve done more cardio over the winter as the hike, which ive done a thousand times, kicked my ass!

was surprised to see the water temp at 53 degrees, and fished it hard for a couple hours without a take. went through a bunch of patterns...nothing. then, went to my ol' reliable that never lets me down and hooked 5, landed 4 in the next hour or so before i called it a day. great to get out.

Very nice to see you got into them. Three guesses where that pond was. It does get steep.
