I am longing to fish for Resident fish but my schedule will not allow the travel time. This morning I would stick closer to home and fish for Dropbacks. Plan "B" was a lot better than not fishing at all. I strung up the Single hander and headed out several hours before first light. The lights from the bridge above the River offered just enough light to make the tailout of a small run just visible enough to fish. Two drifts in and I was hooked-up with my first fish. The springy jumps of a nice trout replaced the peaceful lull of the River. The Stars hung overhead. I brought three clean Hens to hand in the hours leading up to dawn. The morning arrived and dark males were the norm. I fished for a couple hours and called it a day. I returned home in time for a nice late morning breakfast, followed by a glorious nap with my Son. A perfectly executed plan "B".
