TRDW Flyfest...

Had a great time at TRWD Flyfest yesterday. Checked out some of the fly tying demos, and joined the fishing contest on a whim. Had brought fly fishing gear out of habit but left the chest waders. Had put the waders away since the Trout Stocking Season was winding down.

While walking around, stopped by the fishing contest booth and learned that an opening was available for the next heat. Decided to sign up when I remembered the hip waders were in the pick up. Kept them there as a backup set of waders, and forgot to put them away. Good thing… ended up using them for the contest.

The contest worked in two-man Teams – one fisherman fished for 10″ while the other fisherman waited, then they would switch when a horn sounded. We ended up getting three on the line – one was almost landed but the other two were on the line briefly before throwing the hook or breaking off the line.

For the one that was almost landed, had forgot to bring the landing net (it was put it away in the garage already). So, ended up trying to bring it to the shallows to land it but the fish decided otherwise.

Overall, had a great time!

PS: Went back today; hooked and lost more again. Should’a brought the net again. This time left it in the car. Did see others hooking up with them! Will get a video posted.
