I spotted this guy on a certain Central PA stream amidst March Browns, Tan Caddis, Olive Caddis, Grey Foxes, Leptophlebia, three different sulphurs, and rising brown trout.





Could it be Feathers5 or Lastchance perhaps?

The angler in question does resemble Feathers5, somewhat, and he looks a bit similar to Lastchance, but facial recognition software actually identifies him as Goose.

Gorgeous fish, and the bug photos aren't too shabby either. Love the Leptophlebia spinner. Good work, guys.

I don't know who he is, but I'm darn worried about the guy standing out in that set of rapids! Call the Coast Guard!

If it was me, I sure wouldn't admit it. That guy's face could stop a pacemaker. I heard Crepuscular put him on some good fish.

That river sure has put some smiles on some Troutnuts this season, and its early yet.

Eric...I think I do recognize that guy...He looks just like a nymph fisher I know who likes to swim in the Little J. ;) the last time I saw him he was complaining about forgetting some underwear in a tree over that way.

I saw him holding a fish just like that one just before he decided to stop fishing and go for a swim. I thought those Amish banned him from over that way for disturbing their cattle...

Pretty. The fish I mean.

Nice images, guys.

Just so everyone knows, Bruce (a die hard nymph fisherman)had set a personal goal of catching a fish over 15" on a dry fly. Well he succeeded. And then some. These fish were not easy like the ones Spence caught from the same creek. They were mostly eating caddis and Bruce did an excellent job of putting the fly where it needed to be to get these fish to eat.

You're making me blush. I nearly fell off of my heels.

Hey! Just because that one fish hit my fly two feet from where you had been tramping around for an hour, while I was looking away, or I was hiding my eyes behind my hand and casting at random, doesn't make it "easy"...;) Hell! I could of fell in, or got hit by lightening, or a damn tree might of crushed us both in the truck when we were more interested in the beer cooler than the deadly storm howling all around us...Easy? ;)

Easy was the twist-off caps on our beers. Easy was the cutie pie waitress with her smiles and sass, easy was the late night tying session...The fishing...Well, ok...I did say we were like 12 year olds in a bluegill pond...

There are few days when the river gods must say to themselves, "Selves, this boy drove all the way from Detroit, look at them slugging along out there with a serious storm bearing down on them, whats the problem with giving them a couple hours of silliness? We won't completely go over the top...We will let them see the Henny spinners, but the storm will chase them away..." A taste of honey...

Way to go Brucie!!! You have been watching that friend of yours, Antonio, long enough that some of that dry-fly stuff would catch on...Watching him midge Spring Creek was quite the show. :)

Goose is another possibility as well, Eric....:)

Beautiful fish, Bruce!
