I was invited by a friend to join him for a day on a private wild trout stream in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. He is a featured tier at the winter shows and a member of our local chapter of TU so we had met over tying but had never fished together. I had no expectations other than knowing that he seemed to be a good guy and any time you can get the opportunity to hit some wild trout water in this area you take it. The water had been offered by a fellow fly fisherman who guards his resource with great tenacity. He allows fly fishing only/catch and release fishing, so we were indeed honored to have the opportunity to fish this water.
