Day 36

Spent a day and a half up at Goose Creek to try out my new Matsugo 5:5 9ft rod.  I started upstream and worked my way down trying a number of different terrestrials and catching at least one fish on every pattern I tried.  All said and done my most productive fly was the winged ant which caught over half the fish for the day.  I end the day around 8:00pm fishing around the campsite with at least twenty for the day.  The new rod is super light and very flexible and seemed to need a faster casting action but was great for the small creek and small fish.


Rod:  Matsugo 5:5 9ft
Line:Traditional Tenkara line 10.5ft
Flies that worked: Winged ant
