A Day Off...

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking an afternoon off from all responsibilities to meet up with good friend, guide, and rep Jerry Darkes for an evening of trout fishing at the Rockwell Springs Trout Club. This was the first time I had ever fished here and I am really grateful for the invite and the experience.

After a quick tour and some lunch we hit the stream to try our luck. The lay out of the stream is absolutely beautiful and the fish were more than willing to take a dry. We caught several nice rainbow, brook, and brown trout on a variety of flies, but small dry and dropper rigs, midges, and terrestrials made the fishing extremely fun.

One of the nice brown trout caught on a beetle imitation.

I'm sorry we didn't get more pictures, but we pretty much were just enjoying a slow paced, relaxing, and peaceful day of fishing. JD thanks for the day off, I needed it more than you could possibly imagine.

*On a side note alot of the SAO gang will be out west in July looking for trout in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. The rest of the gang will be back in Alaska and the Adirondacks this August, so you can count on alot of great photos and stories when the guys return. One thing is for sure, we will be in prime shape and ready for the steelhead runs returning to our Lake Erie tributaries this fall.
Until next time have a great summer!
