Well the time has come again for the fishing to slow down, at least for me. the brown spawn is upon us and i hate it. most of the time nymphing eggs to spawning fish is very productive but it just doesn't have the luster like throwing streamers or dries for healthy fish. every once in awhile i will resort to throwing eggs and other various sub surface flies to assed out fish, but i really don't like it. today was one of those days. i hooked into 2 fish in some deeper water and 2 fish in some shallow stuff. landed a dink of about 10" and 1 beat up, twisted mouth, nasty ass brown that was a much bigger fish. he looked so beat up it almost depressed me. the weather was cold and it snowed most of the day. i didn't get out of bed till about 10am so my options were limited.
