Today I fished Gary W. of Nolensville, TN. Gary and I have fished together for ten years or so and while we always have a nice relaxing time on the water, we just don't get together enough.
We left Murfreesboro at 6:00 a.m. and were on the water with the first fish in the boat by 7:30. After a few long stretches without fish, Gary got into his groove and started popping the browns & rainbows. The water was low and the fish were in the usual places which made the float even more enjoyable.
"Look, there is a fisherman for every fish"John it was good to see you on the river and hope your outing went well. Gary, as always it was a pleasure to get on the water and drown a nymph. Now it is time to tie some flies, do some chores and prep for the trip tomorrow.

During one stretch Gary dropped his nymph into a nice run and momentarily had a big rainbow on, until it jumped and threw the hook. Some fish are lost to help the angler learn a lesson, for what he hopes will be an even larger fish the next time. Gary recovered quickly after the loss of that rainbow, used his new found skills and boated a nice brown for some Angling Redemption.
