wild things

Played hooky today and decided to hit my favorite wild trout stream in NJ. Supprisingly, many people came to hike and luckily no fishermen.

The day was hot and humid but the trees provided plenty of shades and the water was cold enough for trouts to be active.

I've never caught so many trouts in this stream as I have today. I guess all the rain we've had recently made them hungry.

Right before I landed this brown, a young couple who were hiking saw me casting and the man blurt out as they passed me "what a fucking poser, there are no fish in this water". Even before I had a chance to respond to his statement with some evil and dirty language, I get an explosive take from the brown.

"You are a fucking idiot" the female companion said out loud I guess for me to hear. I smiled at her and she smiled back at me with embarassment.

  7. lee, i had no idea being a flyfisher can be a potential pretentious activity. once, in this blog, some anonymous person accuse me of fake fly tier. I rather pretend to have a bigger wiener...

  8. East cost creeks seem much like Korean creek. Make sure to take me too when I am visiting. Thanks always for great trip update.
