We did a little December fly-fishing!
We headed to a tiny construction pond that is fed by a tiny brook in Conway.
Clay had some luck there the night before for golden shiners so we thought if the shiner bite was on maybe the trout would be hungry. Also someone pointed out that we haven't done any fly fishing during the quest so we figured we should do a little before the ice comes...
We had a selection of flies available and chose a tiny floating fly. Clay made a bunch of casts and had no luck, we figured the trout were down deep. Since we didn't have any other small flies that sink we chose to add a split-shot to the line and Dave made a few casts.
After about 5 minutes Dave had a little wild brookie... We took some pictures, let the fish go and called ourselves successful fly-fishermen and went on our way!
