Where Fly Fishing is a Professional Passion…..

Great Start to Our Week…..

, Tues Mar. 7, 2017 , Started the week off strong with a trip with one of my clients Ted Linczak, Summerville, SC, NC Mtns, Ted , one of my regular clients joined me for the day along with his brother in law Connor, it was Connor’s second time fly fishing. We got a late morning start, it was mild after a chilly night, and it was breezy/drizzly and we got partly to mostly cloudy conditions to start. Fishing was good from the start, and quickly it was apparent this would be one of those days where the fishing report would sound like a lie. We fished double nymph rigs and did really well, catching a mix of brookies, browns and rainbows, several stud brook trout, one really nice brown landed by Ted, it was awesome. I think we landed between 130 and 150 fish total, and Connor caught probably 60 to 70 himself. Water was still up and pretty clear with a slight tinge of color, ideal for nymphing. We did best on junk flies and some rubberleg nymphs, a rubberleg hares ear was dynamite as was a sucker spawn fly. Spawn flies typically work great in spring, and they did today. The rain held off til almost 4pm, and we fished the two hours in the rain. Great day though, going to be a great month.

Headed out to do a 3/8 float trip with Dr. Sims Riggan, Lexington, NC. It will be Sims and his son and looking forward to a nice float on the South Holston.

Have a great one…..
