Recommended Posts

Friday-Sunday March 26-28,2021. A quick weekend trip to the San Juan quality waters below Navajo Dam. The fish in the picture is not the fish in the video

Nice video, and nice fish. Is the rod bamboo, and if so who is the builder?

thanks, Mike.

@partsman, thank you. Yep it's a bamboo rod. A Dickerson 8014 built by John Clancy.

Nice fish, Sandan.  Looks like a great time.  

@niveker, thanks. We had a blast. Friday afternoon/evening is was cloudy and a tiny breeze, the BWO hatch was amazing, you could hardly tell your fly from the naturals on the water. The fish were holding and eating. Saturday and Sunday, not  a single cloud in the sky and warm. So while the weather was great there wasn't a bug on the water.  Nymphing was the only game in town. Sight nymphing in some spots which is fun. Blind casting nymphs, not a great deal of fun but the fish were there. I'll say this there are an amazing amount of big fish in that quality water section below the dam.  It's our traditional start of the season trip even though we can and do fish year 'round here.
