Winter session 14, attack of the bead wing midge

  Well got out today in the afternoon some yet another winter session. What a nice out day out it was today. 50f for January, I will take all winter. Met up with my friend and we fish a local limestoner. The water was a little off color, and running higher than normal due to the rain and the snow melt. The bite wasnt to good, but we did catch trout. I managed a tri-fecta.  The fish that were caught fault very hard and bows where a runnin.  I did very well with bead wing midge, the brook trout really like that fly, as did the bows. The browns came on the high test hares ear.  All in all it was a great day to be outside.

Something took a bite out of this brown, he still fault very well.

A battered bow.

The bead wing midge. Fished the fly hard and caught several fish with it, and bead stayed.


  1. Lovely fish. That lost tail. I wonder what?

    1. Thank you, I think it would have been a bird of some sort? Maybe an eel or a fish? Im not exactly sure.
