I was fortunate enough to have my daughter join me for some fishing today at Spinney. The weather was beautiful and the fish did not disappoint. We also had two of my friends come along for the ride. And they both were rewarded with joy rides of their own. My buddy Steve at one point caught 3 in 3 cast, finishing with 5 and breaking off another. My buddy Paul landed his first Spinney trout, lost a couple and broke off a HUGE fish that he should have landed. But the most precious catch of the day was the one my daughter landed.

We were on the water from 10-3 and did not see any hatches on the north shore. There were no risers or boils but the fish were there. I suspect the water was too cool for hatches. We did see smaller (young) green damsel nymphs swimming around with no home. The fish were incredibly fat so they are feeding. And yes, she does a really great job to care for the fish keeping them wet in the net before and after pictures. Her favorite moment is reviving the fish and watching it swim off. It made me think that I should start videoing each of her releases because I can see how fun it is for her.
Thanks guys...she is a trooper and makes me proud. Her first ever Spinney trip was two years ago during early ice-off season in the middle of a snow storm but no wind. She was 7 yrs old at the time, and had an easier time making short casts and caught two by herself. It was tougher on the flats yesterday, but she did well even when the wind kicked up.
