Been busy around here. Lots of fishing. Lots of bugs and rising fish. So far it's been a great spring. All dry fly fish...

That's enough for now...

I'm assuming you were on Penns? What is the very first mayfly on the butt of the cane rod? Wow! you really had some fantastic dry fly fishing. It looks like the water is right up in the grass - how was the wading? Are the drakes over? They have started on the Delaware but only way down river around Calicoon.

The photos are from several streams and rivers in PA and NY. The first mayfly pictured is a Hendrickson spinner.

Well then that picture must of been taken at least a few weeks ago. Nice pictures. What kind of fly reel is on the rod?

I think that photo is an older one, however I will say that the first fish I caught on a hendrickson was on March 9th and the last was on May 18th. So without checking the date of the photo, it's from sometime between those dates. The reel is an Abel BG .5

NICE fish, nice flies, I'm a little envious and ask forgiveness...

and I've got a ways to go in image quality so far as posting on the site; a cell-phone camera shot, taken by my long-suffering, bank-sitting spouse just doesn't cut it.

tight lines,

Beautiful artistic compositions. Thanks for sharing these, Eric.

Nice damn day off there mister!!! Next time you're off to play hooky how's about a call?! ;)

Your bug pics are always cool, but that sixth pic is down right artistic...Maybe you missed another calling? Lets see, is that the third or fourth calling you have missed? ;)

Very nice Eric! I hadn't seen the full series before, pretty looking fish and nice flies. Our spring has been cold, wet, and windy...we've gotten rid of the cold and the wet finally but that wind...well, it's evening season now so hopefully as the sun goes down things will get a bit calmer.

That might be one reason Rogue is envious, and I am too!

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