Fly Fishing George Washington National Forest (Dry River)

My first freshwater trip of the year was with my sister, heading to George Washington National Forest (and the Dry River).  With air temperatures hovering around 50 degrees, we fished streamers (small olive woolly buggers), and dry/dropper combinations (foam and a bead-head nymph) and hooked a few brook trout.  The water was clear, cold, and beautiful, and the fish aggressive (where we found them).

I had never fished this area before, and given the experience, I will plan to come back in the spring and summer.
