A heart-warming turnout, weather as good as we could have expected, aggressive fish, and fine eats: what more could a person ask? The revived first annual Nyerges Nymph One-Fly Outing was a hit! Nearly a dozen club members took to the water, and another half-dozen came to help with lunch. That's my definition of success. Gianna Holle did a fantastic job organizing this outing; give her a high-five next time you see her.
The fish were quite cooperative, and nearly everyone caught fish. New member, Carla, caught her first fish ever on a fly rod as well as catching the biggest fish of the day--perhaps 20". Bob Adams caught another large fish. The majority of fish, however, ranged from 14" to 18". They were scrappy and acrobatic. As you'll see from the following photo, they were responsive to quite a range of colors.
A hard day's fishing gives a person a hearty appetite, so for lunch we all chowed down on pizza from Village Pizza in Coupeville (another thing arranged by Gianna). There was good conversation and much laughter.
Here are a few photos from the day (note that the last one is a video):
