Returned from NJ a couple of days earlier than planned. Unfortunately, there was a death in our host's family which cut things short.
Only got 2 days of fly-fishing in & Tuesday had sustained winds & gusts up to 50 mph, which was not conducive to fly-casting. We fished in Augusta county, a couple of places in the Waynesboro area (South River) and Staunton (North River) up into the mountains to fish the shallow & gin-clear streams of the George Washington National Forrest near Elkhorn Lake.
It was great to see & fish the new areas, but the tough conditions limited our 4 fishermen to just 2 trout In 2 days. Fished one place near a place called "The Natural Chimneys", a fascinating-looking natural limestone rock formation carved out by molten lava.
I'll try & post a few pics from my phone later.

Thanks prfishin for the invite, but due to the circumstances, we never made it down to the Roanoke area.

Sorry you had such poor weather and had to cut your trip short. Hopefully Mother Nature will make it up to you next time

Love the pics! Sorry for your hosts loss.
I used to fly fish many many years ago. Tied my own flies too. But after fishing Alaska it just wasn't the same in the lower 48!
Tight lines and following seas!
