Took my line fishing for a monday

Well got out today for the late morning and afternoon. The weather was great and the trout were very eager to eat my offerings. I started out with a dry dropper rig. The dry was a hackle stacker adams and the dropper was a #18 high test hares ear. The trout didnt touch the adams, but they were hammering the h.t.h.e. Around noon the olives started to hatch and the trout began to rise. So I went with an olive hackle stacker, one with a peacock thorax and a quill body. The fly worked great and thanks to the bug bond I put on the quill, the fly lasted all afternoon. I didnt have lunch, the fishing was just to good to stop, so with "more than four" I made my way back to my car.

  2. Hi Johnny!

    I can see that you had a great outing at the stream. Very good looking stream. Must be a pleasure to fish there. I've always liked mayflies so it's nice to see pictures of them. I guess it's Large Dark Olive that's in the pictures. They hatch early in the season. Unfortunately we have between 5-10 degrees below zero centigrade here at the moment and it's about to get even colder. So no fly fishing yet for a while. Thanks for sharing your successful trip to the stream!
