What a way to end September. I had the whole run below Eva's all day. Sunny and calm. Fish up boiling start to finish. Really doin' it. I caught more fish on a #24 today than I ever have in one day. Non stop eatin' it, moving for it, even a few turning around for it! All in the drift, and the approach.
Upon arrival, someone was at the end of the run I was going to fish. Oh, the irony. If you know me, you know my mantra is "stalk 'em like a Heron." That's just how its done, so it was befitting that the bird was there to greet me before I ever got in the water. I had a feeling . . .
Definitely "the" spot!
Bright and sunny today, and dead calm
#24 white hackle-on-a-hook
"Gnat Flat." Great stalking visibility
The Cutthroat end of the creek
#24 Griffith Gnat was the Fly of the Day, by far.
The grassy bank had sippers too
#20 gray hanger worked after noon on the grassy corner
Last fish, a Brown! Some sort of 3-trout slam?
Lightning finally rolled in
Never forget, "Stalk 'em Like a Heron!"
