It had rained hard one night. We got nearly two inches. Not enough to break the drought, but enough that driving into a pond could be a problem. The rain came so fast that a lot of it ran into the ponds. This made the water a little murky. Still it was time to fish.
I headed out with two boxes of flies and graphite and boo rod. Most of the flies were ones that I had received or experiments I had tied up. I hiked in so I would come in at one end of the dam.
