I'm building a rod this winter, and I can't wait to have "that feeling." Beautiful brown, by the way!
I just found your blog a few days ago. Looking forward to follow your posts. I live in Mt. Vernon, Iowa.
I agree with you saying that there isn't anything like using the rod and flies built/tied yourself!I also dont mind fishing those "urban" trout streams!
John,Beautiful site you've put together. I look forward to following your future posts. Nice looking brown.Ben
Good to see that urban trout are not neglected in the USA. You might enjoy a peep at this UK blog on a similar theme. http://urbantrout.blogspot.com/ It is truly amazing what trout can survive, clinging on until the day when the river is allowed to get nearer to its natural state...Merry Christmas to you and yours.Regular Rod
Thanks for the nice comments everyone.
