Iowa's Urban Trout

I've been out a couple times this month tossing dries on the local urban trout stream. It's been fun using the 3wt I built last winter. Something nice about using a rod you built and flies you've tied. Cheers!


  1. I'm building a rod this winter, and I can't wait to have "that feeling." Beautiful brown, by the way!

  2. I just found your blog a few days ago. Looking forward to follow your posts. I live in Mt. Vernon, Iowa.

  3. 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!

  4. John,

    Beautiful site you've put together. I look forward to following your future posts. Nice looking brown.


  5. 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. 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.

  6. Thanks for the nice comments everyone.
