29Dec05 - After looking at the predicted weather for today and the next few days I don't foresee the Little Lehigh Creek improving much; currently it's running at 129 cfs.  The 59 year historical median for today is approximately 75 cfs.

.

27Dec05 - I fished the Little Lehigh Creek (PA) between 1:00 and 2:30 PM.  Conditions were less than optimal due to the recent rains.  The creek was elevated and dirty.  Air temperature was in the low 40's and the stream flow was approximately 150 cfs.  Based on past experiences, I would expect the creek to return to normal by this weekend.  I managed to catch 3 rainbow trout all on a size 16 Oliver Edward's Hydropsyche Caddis Larva.  I had looks but no takes on a size 10 olive wooly bugger.  A majority of fish were hanging tight to the hatchery-side of the bank.  After fishing I drove west to Cabela's (Exit 29 B).  As of yesterday, they had several "good" patterns discounted.  The best discount I noticed were size 12 comparduns marked down to $0.49 each.  These discounts appear only to be available through their regional stores and not online at cabelas.com.

19Dec05 - Thought I'd add some humor with my own "top ten" list.

.

Top 10 ways you know you're hooked on fly fishing:

10. Just being on the water is enough.

9. A stack of fly fishing magazines permanently resides in your bathroom.

8. You enjoy telling fishing stories, even to non-fishermen.

7. Your last cast turns into another ten.

6. You find yourself staring at any body of water as you pass by.

5. Your living room has random flies lying around.

4. Once a year you find a fly stuck to an article of clothing.

3. You find your own fly tying material (Angel Hair/Flashabou) at work or in the gym.

2. You begin naming the fish at your local stream.

.

And the number one way you know you're hooked on fly fishing:

1. You spend more time figuring out the morning's fly selection than your own breakfast!

25Nov - 01Dec05 - I fished Chincoteague and Assateague Island (Virginia side) and managed to land seven fish between 21 and 44 inches.  All but one fish were in the 20-inch class. Water was clear at first but turned dirty towards the end of my trip.  All fish were caught using a 3/0 olive Vineyard Minnow.
