Ive been on the pin for the last half dozen years now and I have just recently joined the dark side. I spun up a box full of caddis, mayfly and price nymphs, some hendrickson spinners, and a buggers and hopped in my car with a buddy and pointed it straight to Lake Placid. We stayed at the Hungry Trout resort and had the head guide booked for the first day.

 

What an experience.

 

First off. The water was unreal. tones of white water, tones of boulders. Rocks everywhere.  AFter two full days I was 10 for about 20 and of that, 5 were on the dry and 5 were on the nymph. 7 browns and 3 rainbows. Nothing "epic", fish around 16 inches. I did lose one that was 24" it was a BEAST and I was simply unprepared for the strike. Ill get him next time.
