It was one of those days that fishing god paged me unexpected, so I have to just go and drink some coffee with him. I thought about old school style before I went, fiberglass rod and clicking reel. Cortland Pro Crest was one of my top choice, smooooth is the game this rod play. A perfect set up for swinging wetflies... (I have been fishing wetflies a lot lately and really enjoyed it.) Well... I DID think about wetflies fishing, but you never know what fishing god have prepared for you... a perfect weather and nice caddis hatch, fish are looking up, splashes along with caddis dancing on the surface... and the flow is just perfect for dryfly fishing! I am glad I brought my dryfly rig with me... SAGE XP 5 weight and SA sensitive trout 4 weight line. Long cast and long distance mend is the ticket...many trout, and all on top, double caddis (#22 turkey caddis + #14 X caddis).
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
