I'll continue my saying that May has the best fishing in the DC Metro area.
Today was no exception. We had massive amounts of rain in the past few days plus a full moon four days ago. Throw that in with high tide today and you get making for some fantastic fishing. A day I have been waiting three years to fish. I used a nine foot eight weight with eight weight floating line. Leader was 30lb-20lb-14lb Berkley Vanish. I started with a Backstabber and changed to a Kaufman rubber leg, bead head stonefly. The flies looked like this borrowed image:
Here are some pictures to get you up to date on how it all happened:
Until the next event.....
