Nice ending to the season

I swear I posted this a few hours ago and it disappeared.

Anyway, last week I was able to get up to fish with VTflyfish and Upstate Dave. The weather was warm and pond temps on the surface ranged from 62-64. The fish were active near shore and we all got some nice fish. This hen took a black and purple stillwater nymph. It was great getting up to the ponds again. Returned to fish the salt and was laughed at by the false albacore.

It's OK CW, by the time he plays the fish for an hour and then plays with it for pics it's a goner anyway.

Sounds like he’d be better off just putting it on a stringer like all his worm caught fish.
