This past weekend was a pike frenzy fishing in Vermont and the tribs of Lake Champlain. Kate and I fished two half days and boated 8 pike, had follows, and lost a few. Yes, that happens, single hook debarb flies do shake loose. 

Needless to say we had a blast, gained even more experience, and appreciated all the pike gods had to offer. As I know so well, every predator fish you get to interact with is a blessing. It is not everyday fish show up while on the water, each experience is a gift. I am excited to continue to explore new water!
