Lots of different fishing holes

Spring Creek 1997

I met Don Bastien at the Izaak Walton show in Toronto and asked him about PA fishing. Afterward I figured it would be a good holiday for my son and I so we contacted Don for a half day of guiding.

The Bush House where we stayed. I’ve heard that this hotel has since burned down. Scott oredered and drank a monster German beer at the restaurant and afterward we tossed bread to the ducks and trout, including a couple of large palomino trout.

Spring Creek as it winds through Bellfonte. No fishing here.

Scott nymphing a seam just outside of Bellfonte on a nondescript piece of water that was full of fish.

More nymphing under Don’s guidance.

Another nice fish .
