I decided to go down to the river before I went and got some Chinese food.
It was dusk time and this was my first time fishing at this time of the day. I have read in Thomas Ames' book "Hatch Guide for New England Streams" that early morning and late evening are some of the best times to be on the river. Since I haven't had this opportunity before, I decided to correct this situation.
Early today my brother-in-law and I took his two sons and their children (five total) fishing on a local pond. It was fantastic (and the kids had a good time too). We take passing our passion of fishing onto the next generation seriously and today we helped cement that love for fishing with the kids.
Anyway.........on the way back from fishing with the kids I decided to do a little fly-fishing since I didn't do any fishing earlier. I threw a dry fly on and the first pass by the eddy resulted in a hook up; however, the fish spit the fly and the next hour I tried to get that fish without any luck.

I may need an intervention because I believe I am addicted to this thing called fly-fishing.
