Species:Trout, Rainbow

I often joke that I like fly fishing because it's difficult, but today that humor was lost on me. The plan was to bounce streamers into some of the deeper holes on the Gunpowder and hook up with some trout.

After 4 hours all I could manage was 7 lost streamers, 1 lost nymph and a broken Lillian on my Tenkara rod. Since my fly fishing skills are next to none, I always pack a portable spinning rig that I use in a last ditch effort to avoid the skunk. The backup plan worked today since I caught this plump little trout on my spinning rig by drifting a nymph on an indicator.

Even though I' still looking for my first trout on fly, I considering this fish my first trout on 1/2 fly. Fly fishing lures and tactics on a spincast rig.
