One year Flyfishing anniversary

It's been a long time since I have had a chance to go fishing and I finally had a chance today.
I decided to go fly fishing only because it has been one year since I actually started fly fishing.

I headed out to EB in Brewster where I first FF with Mike MVB.  I got out there and the scenery was completely different then a year ago. Much less trees up stream and plenty of extra fallen trees down stream!

I waded and FF for quite some time with no luck I proceeded to walk down stream and try some areas that I have had luck with in the past but no luck. I continued fishing but nothing. I tried and tried and nothing. I then realized that this time of year must suck to fish. I didn't see any fish in the water except one small carp, no fish rising at all.

Then while I was casting in my " Go to spot" I felt a slight tug. I got so excited I " blew my load" by pulling the fly to hard. I continued to Dry Cast and cast the line 10 ft above the exact location of the strike and again I felt the tug but I was ready this time! I just held the line instead of ripping out the fly and boom a 2 inch Yellow perch!!!!! Exactly what I caught a year ago in the same water.

Over all it was a beautiful day and it was great to get back into the swing of things. Sorry that I don't have any trout to report but these days happen, Even to the best of Anglers!
