This really blew me away. In my experience some of the most realistic patterns are not the best fish catchers. Still this is a cool tie. I know it would take me while to figure this one out.
I had a great day out on a wild brown trout stream with my buddy Ryan. I have to credit him for the great pix and vid here. We were hoping to get into some good hatches but that really didn't happen. I fished a Fenwick 706 which is a 7 ft 5/6 wt rod. I used a 5 wt weight forward line and a long leader with a big stimmy and a long dropper with various heavily weighted nymphs. Ryan fished an 8 ft 6 wt Fenwick Glass rod with 6 wt wt forward line.
I took my older brother to fish a wild brookie stream on the day after xmas. The stream is at an undisclosed location in an undisclosed state. So don't ask! Fishing was hard with lots of blow ups at the highly buoyant flies we used. As we got deeper into middle earth the fish got bigger and we had a higher catch to strike ratio. These places are real gems. I feel so lucky to be able to experience them.
