See the attached PDF with details and map for the Fishing on the Gunpowder day with TPFR and NVTU.

Come on out !!!

Well, with the low water and closing of the Shenandoah Park, the trout fishing has been tough.  So if your hankerin' do some fishin', or want to practice those techniques you just learned at those upcoming Orvis Euro Nymphing classes with Bryan Donoway (also on the Gunpowder - see Orvis Arlington), or just want to fish the wonderful Gunpowder River  --  mark your calendar to join us for a day on the Gunpowder.

Thanks for organizing.  I live in the McLean area, happy to carpool with a few folks from the area out that way.

Hey folks. Any recommended patterns/sizes beyond “nymphs and streamers?”

I haven't fished the Gunpowder much recently but when I did this time of year my typical rig was something like a #16-18 pheasant tail or copper john with a slightly long dropper and a #20 or maybe even 22 zebra midge or similar midge-ish thing.

In case you are wondering …

21 very aspirational men and women from TU and TPFR drove up, geared up, rigged up, and psyched up. For most, it was their first their experience fishing the Gunpowder.  The flow was low.  The fish were there but could have been a bit more cooperative. 

Although not a complete tally, a few of the beasties were brought to hand in the morning using pheasant tails, rainbow warriors, and buggers.  Once the afternoon came around  - parachute adams, griffith's gnats, and 90%-ers were on the menu for some rising browns - and, yes, a brookie.

GTHBA  (good time had by all).  Thanks for coming out !!


TPFR is a charter chapter of FFI (Fly Fishers International).  Moving forward, we’re planning more days on the water targeting other species and different locations.  These trips will be open only to FFI members so don’t delay - go to our website and become an FFI member today.

Cheers

I’m a little entirely shocked at this. Are there other things now that TPFR does that only members of FFI can participate in?
