I had received permission to go to pond that is not available a lot, and since the fishing urge was strong I packed up my gear for a day of fishing. Previously it has not been possible to drive in so I decided to hike in with two rods. I took a 1 weight and a bamboo rod and three boxes of flies with me. Hiking in about 400 yard helps to prune what is taken to the pond. It was a nice day with overcast skies and a slight breeze. When I got to the pond I can see the bottom out about six feet. I was slightly surprised to find so much weed growth around the edge of the pond. It extended out from the shore line to about four feet.
