Good People - Good Water - Good Fish

I'd been fishing in the West on vacations and just learning how to fly fish.  Tying my own flies and dreaming of fly flying started in high school, but I only fished in ponds.  Even then, I never caught anything.  My first catch was on a fiberglass rod.  It was a turtle in Florida.
 
My hockey buddies fish for trout in Wisconsin a couple of times a year.  In 2006 they asked me, or I invited myself.  We drove in the morning and decided to fish before the sunset at Reads Creek, just off Hwy 14.  I had my two Labrador Retrievers with me, Maggie and Baguette, on this trip.  I let the guys have the Reads Creek falls while I fished the canyon.  My two dogs had never angled before, and it showed.  I think I yelled at them the whole time in the canyon, which was echoing my calls.


I made one excellent cast only, luckily there was a brook trout there, and I landed my first Wisconsin Trout.

Wisconsin Done!
