Default Dam Georgeous Day

Beautiful couple of hours on the river today whilst RScott was at work. Got to meet Stinkbait in the parking lot and he gave me a heads up on what colors the midges were based on actual stomach content.

Based on that intel I did what any lazy fisherman would do and started with the fly that I had on the rod from the end of the last trip, a small streamer similar to the Rolex that I call the Timex. It produced a few fish and several other strikes before I got tired of slinging it and switched to a dry double dropper.

The color combination worked well and I caught fish on both the size 18 I had at the bottom and size 20 I had on the tag. Get out there while the sun shines folks!

It was also great to see Fishemon and T-Boy. Here are just a few from the day.

It's from a Go Pro. Prowler hasn't taught me how to make videos so I just use the camera function.
