  10. Stream conditions were not to good today in Erie, I did see a few fish caught despite all the leaves in the stream. I did manage to get this cool pic in trout run ...more nursery waters.

I started fishing as soon as I could hold a fishing rod, a special thanks goes out to my parents for having the patience with me. I just enjoy ...more being on the water fishing for anything that swims and spending time with family and friends.
