FIRST WADE OF 2017




A FEW DAYS LATE ADDING THIS POST BUT I HAD MY FIRST DAY OF FISHING IN THE OLD HOMETOWN AND WHAT A DAY IT WAS.  IN MY 50 YEARS OF FISHING BUFFALO CREEK I DON'T THINK I EVER CAUGHT MORE THAN 2 TROUT IN ANY GIVEN DAY.  MONDAY WAS OUR USUAL DAY OFF AFTER EASTER AND I HEADED TO THE CREEK.  I CAUGHT 6 TROUT AND THREE WERE REAL BEAUTYS.  THE LARGEST WAS IN THAT 16 - 17  INCH RANGE.  LOTS OF WILDLIFE TOO WITH A FOX SQUIRREL....PILEATED WOODPECKER....WOOD DUCKS....MALLARDS......MERGANZERS AND THE CANADIAN GEESE THAT YOU WILL SEE IN THE PICTURES.  AS SOON AS I JUMPED IN THE CREEK I SAW ONE OF THE EAGLES.  ONLY NEGATIVE TO THE DAY WAS I FELL IN THE WATER AS I SLIPPED ON A ROCK AND THE CURRENT JUST TOOK ME OVER AS I WAS STANDING ON ONE FOOT.  BUT PEOPLE HAVE SAID I AM ALL WET FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.     :  )
