Colder…..

It got down into single digits last night…..the Hoppers have gone….sigh.
Days are so nice we are all out playing!
Been spending some time on still waters this last couple weeks.
It’s a nice change from executing perfect drifts over super smart fish.
Switching between watching a dry just sit there, and watching a bobber just sit there…..
OK, maybe a little micro troll too…..we had some big Grey Drakes coming off, but the fish weren’t eating dries for some reason, so we swam some nymphs, just above the grass, near the bottom. The big guys were deeper than the little guys….

The waters are down to low winter flows already, and won’t improve till spring.
Waiting patiently for snow, so most humans will leave the water to me and my sicko friends.
There will be a [U]small[/U] window for risers, but mostly fishing a little bobber and small flies…
BWOs, and midges mostly….the little bugs of love.

Bring some warm fuzzies for wading, and bring a hat and coat for early attacks.
Bring your A game….the fish are waiting.
