I just got back from 5 days down in Northern California fly fishing with a 5 friends from the Bay Area with whom I’ve been fishing for 30 years. We spent several days fishing Hat Creek and Manzanita Lake. Lots of fun fishing nymphs and dries on Hat Creek, and chironomids on Manzanita Lake. I fished my 8′ 0″ 5 wt slow action Spring Creek Series bamboo rod during this trip, and it produced well. Here are a few photos from my trip.
