We only had a small window as both of us had commitments later in the day.
I tied up some flies for the trip as my Caddis supply was getting low. I added a few other flies for diversity not knowing what situation we would end up with.
This I did not plan for. Windy, overcast and cool was the order of the day.
I picked up my guest just after 5:00 AM than blew off a lot of precious fishing time driving in circles trying to find my way in my own back yard.
We got to spot number one a little brookie hole just below the headwaters running off the Escarpment.
Being a polite host I gave my guest the best shot in this little tight spot really only good for one angler. I dicked around while my guest got hooked up a couple times on a couple brookies and something that chomped his fly off.
We moved on to a new spot. A little run with a couple of nice holes. One of my favorite spots in this area even though it is right beside the road and heavily beaten by spinners and worm dunkers.
Still in my polite mode I let my guest have the choice spots while I had a beverage and fished a little bit. I came down a grassy peninsula to close to where my guest was fishing staying on the bank. "I cant believe you did not get anything out of that spot" I said and took a couple of casts in and this guy smashed my fly and did a crazy dance and I laded it took couple of photos and released it.
Back to my beer.
Took some bug photos than it was time to wrap up and head out.
After dropping my guest off I had a couple of hours to burn before I was due home I restocked at the LCBO around the corner and looked for some spots without getting lost (this time). Thanks[/report]
