Yesterday was one of "THOSE" days. Lack of sleep, family problem, and work stress all came together in a perfect storm of sh*#. I took off work for the day and finally got the family crap worked out. It was 7:30am and I tossed on my wading shorts, grabbed my 3wt and took off for my spot on the Olentangy, a nice little stream here in central Ohio. I put on a little Carolina Blue popper and commenced to fish. Two ducks swam by, a flock of Canadians flew over, and a turtle surfaced right by me. It was a glorious morning. As I got to the rocky part of the shore, the first Smallie hit. It was only a dink, but it went airborne at least 3 times. In the next 2 hours I landed about 20 Smallies, the largest being just over 11" with 3 more being 9+. It was by far my best day for Smallies on the 'Tangy and with the 3wt., every fish was a battle. By 11:00, I was home, showered, and ready for a nap. Today looks so much better. Why fish? Because it's almost cheaper than therapy.
