First Trip for Alvin (with his new gear)

Took Alvin to Huntsman.  He had all the new gear -- Sage rod and reel, patagonia breathable waders, new wading boots, new (and mostly empty) fly box.

Started him off on the south shore, fishing a wet.

Luke got a touch before I even got Alvin to the water!  It was looking good!  But it was a day of misses.

Luke got 3 touches.
Alvin got one.
I got a ton of touches.  I lost a tiny fish on an Olive Woolly Bugger.  I lost a nice fish (probably 1.5 lbs) on the Olive Woolly Bugger, right in front of Luke.  I think some foul language may have escaped my lips! I lost a smaller fish on a highland dun in front of Alvin.  At the last gasp I managed to hook and land a small one -- again on an Olive Woolly Bugger.

I got 1 on a Woolly Bugger and dropped many on a dragonfly nymph.  Luke got 3 on a Mrs Simpson.

Trip with Cameron

A fantastic trip with Cameron. We went to woods lake, where Cameron used his kayak, and I used my pontoon boat. I lost a small fish at the pontoon. I hooked one on a dry, but it was so small I flung it 3 or 4 feet on the strike and it flipped off. Cameron released an undersize fish on his spinning tackle.

North Esk

Took Luke to the North Esk.  Luke got one at the very last chance -- on a dry.  His first on a dry!!!

Just 5, but all but one were sizeable. Lost several more of size. Fish rose to the strike indicator often -- I need hoppers and caddis!!! One of the fish that rose to the strike indicator was a good 5lb+
