Thanks to Daniel for the fishing report and kind words from his trip to the Gunpowder this past Saturday.
I just wanted to thank you for mapping out some of the local river crossings for me earlier today. I had an awesome time out there! It was my first trip on the Gunpowder and I must say I’m in love already. It was cold and the fishing was tough. I had to dip my tip often because of ice. I managed to fool a small brown into striking a brown bugger below a log jam, just as you suggested. Its been years since I’ve caught a brownie so it made my day. I spent the last 10 years in Texas fishing the Guadalupe, which TU stocks with Bows only. Guadalupe Bass, and Smallies are a much more typical catch throughout most of that river. It felt wonderful to fish for cold water species in their natural setting. You guys are truly blessed with a beautiful fishery. I will frequent your website, and have already become a huge fan of your writing and videography. I feel excited to be back home in Maryland, Texas stocked trout cannot compare to matching wits with a wild specimen. I hope to learn much about the area in the future and plan to fish the river as much as possible between now and May, when I will head to Alaska for my summer job. You guys run a great shop and I look forward to stopping in again soon. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction, it was by far the most informative first trip to a fly shop Ive ever had.
