Since I now work on the edge of a nice pond in Manchester, NH I have no excuse for not fishing more often.

Tonight I launched my yak from the dock here at work. In the afternoon I had scouted some areas during my lunch hour and now I had the rod in the yak.

I had rigged up my 5 weight and I was tight to a small bass within minutes. The wooly bugger comes through in the clutch as always.

I had a great night casting flies to submerged trees and into deep pocket water. Or maybe it was into trees and into deep pocket water. The casting stroke was a little rusty.

Final tally, some small bass and a pickerel and a sunfish. The sunfish fought like a champ after inhaling a sculpin. I lost a crappie and therefore did not complete the slam.

Great night and it was good to feel the pull of a fish again. Although I must say that I cannot wait to feel the pull of a cow striper. Tonight was not medicine for that itch.

Spring is springing. Go fish!
