Pat M on the trigger








seeing eye to eye



clean fish


i leave it alone for 5 minutes and........
the way it should be





Today was not a numbers game by any means, in fact we each only pulled a few fish each. we did however, each take 1 fish over 20", with pat taking a beast at 24 1/2". i had hopes of pulling some on top and with a steamer so i rigged up 2 rods, one for each method. neither produced though. i did see afew risers but i couldn't entice anything, throwing a midge pattern, 2 different bwo patterns and a caddis. i soon switched to a nymph set up and the pig sticker started reaping dividends right off the bat. pat was muscleing fish with a pig sticker and an egg dropper, oth flies produced. the weather was great, in fact almost to great as we got cooked. the wind was very cooperative and the sun was quite pleasant. there were some midges, bwo's and caddis popping off but i think it is probably stil a 3-4 weeks away from really being good on top.tommorrow i head after cutties in the same general direction, can't wait!
