My reward for working the last 11 days was two hours of windshield time to one of my favorite cold weather stream sections. The fishing was outstanding as the browns were colored up and they were fairly aggressive to my offerings. However the highlight of the day was flushing a covey of ring neck pheasant from some streamside cover.

Nice John! Beautifully colored fish you have there. It's such a pleasure to get out and fly fish this late in the season when the weather is cooperating. Well done!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

John...You better be more cryptic! I think I've figured this out with my PA decoder ring...Eric gave it to me last April when I was nosing around the keystone state.

I'm just happy you got a chance to wet a line young man...I know you have been working your, "you know what", off!

Nice to see.

Eric,
That is a paraphrase from a PA fly fishing ledgend who has a series of "how to videos"

I believe the actually quote was "this is a lovely stream that is open to the public but sees more than it's fair share of angling pressure"

I actually fished the stretch that the video segment was filmed on. The most important lesson I got from that video was neither the tuck cast nor the leader construction or rigging info covered but the fact that the fish in this stream like to lay in places that don't always seem "trouty" (read the skinny stuff close to the banks).
Again Spence will have to pull out the Decoder ring for that one but he fished this stream a mile or so below where I was.

Awesome looking fish. Love the spots on the lower brown - big, dark, and scattered. That middle brown has some huge fins - makes you understand / appreciate how these fish can ambush prey so well.
