Winter session 7

   Well, got out today for some winter flying with my friend. We went exploring some new water on a little limestone stream. The water was 40f and gin clear. With the sun in full glory, it made for a tough days fishing. But sticking to the shadows and the some deeper water, we manage "more than four".  It was wonderful scenery and some very nice wild brown trout.  The effective flies where the Golden Oldie, U.V. High test hares ear, and an olive midge pupa. Ill do a post on this fly as it did work quite well.  There was midge hatching as well early black stones.

    1. Shadows are a number 1 fishy spot on blue bird days. The last brown was tucked up under a wild rose that was on the bank, with most of it growth on the water. There was a nice cut in the bottom under and around the bush with a rock above the cut creating an eddy. 3 drifts i put through and she came on the third, which i put under the bush. Great fish.
