Thanks to all the veterans who have served our country so that people like me can do things like this!

Stan and I met at a small Erie trib at sun up. We finished our Tim Horton's coffee, put on our waders and were on the water by about 7:15. Stan hooked up first and fought a hot fish, that jumped 2 or 3 times, for quite a while but ended up losing him.

As Stan was tying on another fly I hooked in to a pretty good fish and after a couple good runs I landed it

Image

I landed a couple more fish and Stan hooked and lost a few more:

I got in to a hot fish that rolled and jumped and went absolutely crazy ... I lost him right at the shore. Here I am running after him

Image

Here is a pic of the last fish I landed

Image

We fished for almost 4 hours I hooked about a dozen and landed 5. Stan hooked close to that number but was unable to land any. He had all sorts of bad luck but he still had a lot of fun.

".........And now back to our steelhead correspondent for more on the run at the Erie Tribs. "

Thanks, Rob, for making me wish I was you.

But then again it IS Buffalo! Brrrrrrrr!

Yer Pal,
Jule

Glad you guys are enjoying the field reports from the Lake Erie tribs! That was the clearest water that I have fished this season ... there was no rain for about a week. It was tough and you had to be pretty careful but not as bad as I thought it would be when we got there. We still have not had any rain and there is none in the forecast until next weekend. The pickings may be a little slim this weekend. I am going to try to get out a little each day but I am not all that optimistic on how it is shaping up
