neighborhood ponds

They exist almost everywhere, small ponds, often warm water fisheries, but many get trout stockings. I'm fortunate enough to have several within minutes of home and work allowing me to fish over lunch and on the way home from work.

Often the fish are smallish, but on occasion a decent size fish comes to net.

One thing not often mentioned about this trips is the memories. Today on my second and third casts I landed fish. That attracted the attention of a youngster who hadn't caught or seen anyone else catch a fish. He immediately invited himself to join me. An adult I'd chased off, not a kid. Anyway, it was fun working with him, and passing on a couple flies. I love kid encounters when fishing.
