Fishing Wednesday 2/9/22
« on: February 11, 2022, 04:24:04 PM »
I arrived at Hinds Bluff as the water was falling out, plus to find no one else there. As the flow settled down I stepped in and caught fish from the creek inlet down to the last point before the bend. I used an A and W, Long Creek, and Olive Lil Mo wooly. Other people stopped by throughout the day, but didn't stay long, so I still had the place  mostly to myself. Two other fly fisherman arrived before I left, but they ended up going down around the bend. After lunch the action was below Butt Buster Shoals on the Temple Duck Dry/Emerger. I love drifing that fly through shallow moving water and getting hits. Also got to work on line mending as well. It was so much fun, but sadly I had to leave fairly early to get home before too late. Note to self, when getting hits but no caught fish check the hook. Yep had to fix a straightened hook.

The fish were hitting much better than my last trip, where I worked hard to catch fish. I had heard that others had experienced the same issue.

Anyway I had a great trip, caught fish, didn't fall in, and got home safely, John D
