You suck, Stone Man. Heh.

I finished my yard work all day yesterday and today at about noon, suited up in my waders, and hit the road with a sore back just as the temps dropped 20 degrees, the wind came up, and it started raining sideways. I fished for 3 hours to no avail. The wind was blowing my nymphs with two BB weights up into the air. Not a fish to spot, and not a fish caught.
I did get really wet and cold, however. :(

Ben,
The fish in that particular creek retain their parr marks until they reach about 12 inches. Have no clue as to why. IMHO the parr mark usually leave at about 6-7 inches. Some of those fish in the photos are close to 10 inches .... mebbe 11 inches

Phil,
Mtn. City is only 45 minutes from Boone. And I would be more than happy to show you around tha criks , ........ I might even show you what nymphs they bite for the absurd low price of $14 per nymph. :mrgreen:

Yer ole' buddy ............... Charmin' Johnny
