Fly Fishing the Upper Rapidan River


Michael found a fly fishing spot on the upper Rapidan that you can only access via an old Forest Service Road. He went a few months ago by himself to check it out and only found local fisherman along the river. About a month ago we both went back together to try fishing it again. We didn't have any luck but I thought I'd throw up some pictures. The river was gorgeous with lots of open sky above the water allowing quite a bit of light in, which isn't always the case on some mountain rivers. Additionally there were some deep holes great for fishing or swimming on a hot summer day.  I didn't edit any of these images (feeling lazy today) but you get the idea!
