Mortimer, NC

Pulled an all dayer in Mortimer NC. lost three nice pigs, one almost in hand! I did however, land two piglets and a few 10-12 brook trout. Weather was excellent starting out at 33 and ending up at 70. The big nasty #6 (Aka slumpbuster) in Olive was the show stopper once again, this fly is freaking HOT! I seen so many attempted strikes by some huge fish. They appeared to come right to it and roll away. Almost missed the shot on the second piglet..lol

  2. Sure has! I may have to hit it again while it lasts. Hope you got some water time during the holiday?

  3. Not so much fishing for me. Did scout a "new to me" stream I'm eager to hit next spring (or this year, if the weather permits)

  7. John,

    Thanks for the invite but, I used my day off already this week. You sound like me, I get up earlier to go fishing than I do to go to work. Im that guy that is checking the light and saying just one more fish, and Im always driving home in the dark.
