Fishing the Escanaba

First - some lessons among the rapids at the bend



Jonah is learning on a six foot custom glass rod.

Beautiful day on the river.

I was fishing down stream and roll casting into the banks.

Had half a dozen strikes, and caught two small brookies. Not being a particularly accomplished (or even competent) fly fisherman, I am always astonished and irrationally exuberant about catching any sized trout on a fly.

I used an HDW tied fly -The Silver Streak - a cone head white maribou muddler.
