My First of 2012

Thursday afternoon saw beautiful weather here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. So after work I headed to a local river to try to get my first trout on a fly for the 2012 season. Water was a little high so put on three different flies and weight to get them down. A soft hackle, hares ear and a olive feedinator. After about 4 casts the first rainbow was on the feedinator. A real nice fish. Fought him a few minutes while he made three leaps then off he came. After losing the olive feedinator to the trees I tied on a red one. Wasn't too long when I got another hit. This time I took my time and finally got him into the net. Another real beauty. Made my net look tiny. First fish of 2012, a 19 inch rainbow.

Sand Eels and Klinkhammer

Tied a few sand eels then did a few Klinkhammers. Both were fun to make. Can't wait to get out on the water again.
