Left work early today to take Dad to the airport and called in with back problems - as in, I didn't want to go back! Grabbed the fly rod and hit a local trib for some small water fishing. I really love the way they hit the fly when they're feeling mean - nothing is more exciting than fighting a ticked off smallie in on a lightweight fly rod. Posted the nicest fish on the day - you may recognize the spot by the feature in the background. I tend to switch between the spinning outfit and the fly rod as the mood and conditions (wind, available time, type of water) strike me. Does anyone else play both instruments? Thoughts on deciding between the two? Any particular preference given the time of year?
