Well days 2 and 3 would have been pretty boring to read about. I've been trying a new set up for float fishing. It's a center pin rig and I am still getting used to even casting that thing let alone hooking and landing a damn fish. Today I went back to the fly rod and it was fun.

My good friend Manny met me on the stream and it was a lot of fun. I landed 3 and hooked and lost 4 more but that's not too bad for these big Ontario fish. It was cold and we had to take a few coffee breaks to warm up but we had a lot of fun. The browns were pretty thick and not a lot of steelhead in there yet. Personally I love catching the lake run browns. Anyhoo here are some pics

Yeah I pinned a bead above a brown mop fly but they only seemed to like the mop. Maybe the bead caught their eye but who knows with these fish :?
