A morning outing yesterday. I managed to find some rainbows, including one that taped at 18″. It was a true beast.
But, the most fun came from catching brookies on dry flies. I really enjoy tightlining, but it was a welcome sight to see wild fish rising. So, I put on a small X-Caddis and that did some good work. I’m making some of the bodies these days from twisted-together CDC and letting a bunch of the fibers stick out.
After things went quiet, I started to skitter the fly, and that triggered more strikes. Some of the brookies actually leapt out of the water! Some rainbows also took dries.
I hope you all are enjoying this weekend. The daylight period is getting longer, and the bugs are more active.
