It was a rather uneventful weekend except for one fish 🎣. It was 63 degrees on the river this morning, that was nice, only 3 degree warmer than the water!  No generation for 2 days. Caught very few fish since last post. Still mostly throwing the yellow soft hackle and the R & A. Not many people out fishing during these hot days. I did catch one 16+ inch fish on “my brown fly” on Friday! First 16 incher I’ve caught in a while, guess he had learned what to eat in the river to grow that extra couple of inches, or just to survive!!. I’ve caught quite a few 14 to 15 inch trout this year, but not many over that. Last year yes, this year no!!  I said on “my brown fly”, I tie a variety of brown flies, but this was my favorite. Just natural hare’s ear dubbing, hare’s ear tail and a brown hackle. No wire, no flash, just what the trout should have learned to eat to survive!!  I fish mostly flies I tie. If you don’t tie, you should, it adds that extra dimension to trout fishing and satisfaction to catching a fish you fooled. If you don’t tie, Jeff has a variety of brown flies like the Long creek, A&W, R&A etc. etc., that work well on this river by imitating the bugs we have here. Check them out. I use to buy flies from Jeff all the time, now I just try to copy his flies!!!🤣🤣🤣. It gives the fish something to laugh at.

Thanks for the report, Mike.  I also tie flies but my problem is that I can tie way more than I have opportunity to use.  I am tying for 3 other fishers and still l have way too many.  I suppose I should try to fish more often.
