Our first trip of the season welcomed in the Reel Woman-Reel Men Fly Fishing Club from Indianapolis. Everyone met up Friday Afternoon at my cabin in the Allegheny's and shared a few laughs and refreshments before dinner. The consensus was unanimous on the rest and relaxation and looking forward to the quiet and laid back trout getaway.
After a few hours of meet and greet, and popping a few of my father's famous cherries it was time for dinner. Each day we had something different from Steak & Wild Rice, Home made Roasted Pepper Spaghetti and meat balls, to good old BBQ Chicken and Veggies. Add in a few fresh wild berry pies and everyone was stuffed to the gills.
After Dinner everyone sat around talking about all the great fishing experiences each has had on the fly. As a group we all prepared new leaders and got all of our gear in order for the morning and tied up some of the flies patterns we would use over the course of the weekend.
Breaking bread together and sharing a few good stories!
Our property had alot of history with in the Mountain. Old bed rock bridge embankments cross the stream is several places along way from any public road. These bridges were built by the Monks in the early 1900's while in the region teaching Christianity to the Corn Planter Indians.
When It was all said and done; Everyone had a wonderful time and caught a ton of trout. They also left the cabin a few pounds heavier! After getting the cabin ready for the next group I needed to get out for a long hike and hook one for myself... There is something about trout fishing that is always apart of your life, and I am so glad time is taken to pursue simple pleasures!
