The sun finally revealed itself up on the Parkway. I took full advantage.

The afternoon began on a small stream near Meadows of Dan, Virginia. Right on the Parkway. Last year, I didn't see nor catch anything. Out of curiosity I hiked down from the Parkway to the stream. Within about 10 minutes I figured out that this stream hasn't changed; still troutless. It was a very enjoyable afternoon though. The weather can't get any better. Sunny skies, upper 70s, a south (thus warm) breeze.

No fish in that stream. Plan B: Fish for sunfish and bass at the warmwater pond I fished yesterday. Excellent choice in the end. Many fish caught and as always, another close shave with Mr. Whiskers, who decided to pursue my Zonker only to back off upon closer inspection.

Here's a few pictures. the first 5 were shot with the Canon EOS 20D. Because the lens are 75-300mm, It's hard to take fish pictures closer than 5 feet. I'm now concentrating on widening my lens selection. The fish pictures are taken with a Sony Cybershot (point and shoot).

 Azaleas. Came out great.

 Buffalo Mountain in the distance.

 Old cabin and milk jugs adjacent to the pond.           

Hope everyone has had a blessed Easter!

Good stuff, some of those Appalachian sunfish have the prettiest color.

They sure do! The male bluegills are incredible come June up here. Orange, blue, green, and everything in between.

Love those feisty little fish, if all else fails, always a source of action.

Outstanding images and the streams up that way is awesome. My wife and I would love to live in the mountains, but we have too much family here. Thanks for sharing

Thanks Bill! I hear you on living in the mountains. It's bittersweet leaving them until next time!
