05.01.19 Broke the skunk on the Delaware......

     They say you always remember your first. It might not have been one of the bigger fish that swims on the banks of the capital but it was nice, very nice. Started out at first light on the dropping tide and fish for about 2-1/2 hours before it grabbed the fly right out my feet. 

     I had 'The Pipe" as its known all to myself, which made me doubt myself for even fishing, and then moved upstream to the brides. Amazing how pocket-watery it is here and I fished it like a trout stream but had no other takers. Its about a 9-11 foot tidal range here depending on the river flows and it comes quick and empties quick. Now have to get some in the bay or ocean. Have a trip booked for Friday if the weather holds out.
