Where Fly Fishing is a Professional Passion…..

Beetle and Ant ……That’s The Rant…….

Sat….July 30, 2011…….Quite a hot start to the morning, it was nearly 80F when I left this morning at 600am……looks like hot today and maybe some relief tomorrow in the way of showers and t storms. On the Smitty today with Tom Jackson doing some R& D fishing with a box chocked full of new beetle and ant patterns. Have caught about 10 fish so far, all on dries…..nine on beetles and one on a carpenter ant. Also managed a rainbow on one of my budding CDC midge emergers. Tom and I ate purposefully fishing several spots that have tough fish as they are always good to test new flies on. If you catch fish I have found its good confirmation as to the merits of a fly pattern. These fish are tough……! One reason so many folks don’t have fond feelings for this river. But I do, because most of what we catch are wild browns and we almost always get them on dry flies.

Enjoy your Saturday and more fishing reports later when we finish…
