Well, I finally got out on a Saturday. This never happens for me in the winter, but my daughter is with her grandmother for the weekend so a flying I went. I had somethings to do in the morning, so i didnt get out till around noonish. Which was perfect because the baetis where just starting to hatch on my local limestoner. I still had the odd ball on from last time so I cast it out and was quickly into a wild brown. A quick pick and a release. I put some more drift over some trout but they didnt want the odd ball. So i swapped out for a nicheo, This nicheo was tied using a stripped and dyed peacock quill. I stripped and dyed a bunch yesterday. This nicheo was the ticket. The trout really dug it. It was a nice day and a good hatch today. With "more then four" I headed on home, before the rain came.
|The olive quill body Nicheo. The thorax is dry in the pic, so the color doesnt match but when its wet, it blends perfect.|
|The reddest adipose fin i have seen yet to date. Just beautiful.|
|This brown put up a terrific fight. It was also the most beautiful one of the day. The red is just transfused through out the body, and even tail.|
|The Olive Quill body Nicheo, Wild limestone brown trout approved.|
