  • Back in black

    Hit the water early this morning. With the fog it was hard to see if anyone else was around, but once it lifted I realized I had the place all to myself.

    It was slow at first, which seems typical for me: I rarely catch anything early am, maybe I'm doing something wrong. After about 45-60 minutes of nothing it finally got started. I feel like every other day on the hooch I either catch mostly bows or mostly browns, today was a brown day.

    That last one measured just a touch over 14"
    About 14-15 total. One super small-scale five inches, the rest were all decent sized.

    They were all caught on either a size 16 midgey thing

    Like this ^

    Or a tag fly, I was using a size 18-20 black zebra midge, no flash.

    I just can't believe they can see these small flies in that pea soup, but I'm sure glad they do.

    Those look so much better outta the net. What's that orange you used in the collar? Thin skins?
    We are the music-makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
    Wandering by lone sea-breakers
    And sitting by desolate streams;
    World losers and world forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams.

        Nice fish and good looking fly. Do you have a link for the fluro thread? I couldn't find it searching with google.
