The D (On Yo’ Face!)

12 Jun

Ryan and I spent yesterday getting chased around Western North Carolina by hellacious thunderstorms.  We were one step slow all afternoon getting pounded by rain and lightning down on some new wild water.  We finally got the timing right and hit the N. Davidson for the last couple of hours of light.  It was at this point that we pooped the metaphorical trout bed.

Is it just me or does Ryan look like a New Jack City angler in these next two pics

Not just me right

Not just me...right?

Not a bad couple of hours on the Davidson.  We lost twice as many as we caught due to size 22 flies, 7X tippet, and our own lack of anything that might be recognized as skill.
