For whatever reason, I have always had a guilty attraction to urban water. I've fished mill ponds, drainage ditches, culverts, and canals for years. I've targeted such strange and unlikely fly rod species as eel, bullhead, and koi.
This evening was spent fishing dries and worm patterns on such urban water for Red Breast Sunfish and Chubs. Of course this time of year is not the best for urban angling, usually summer is prime. I had plenty of challenges to overcome: invasive thorn trees, posted spots, and garbage, just to name a few. In the end I did well.
