Got out to the river after work today for a couple of hours! Water was clear, current was a bit strong, but not to bad. Weather was beautiful. Sunny upper 60's little breeze and the steelhead were not where my fly was! If I keep this up I should have an awesome cast by trout season. The Tree's were a might bit hungry. I lost 2 tandem rigs and 2 stone flies.

Still it was a good day!

Next time!

Vegetation is always hungry.

Flies make easy prey. Next are hats, nets and flyrods. bs.gif They just grab them on the way by. laugh.gif
I know where they live, I know what they eat. Now it's time to fool them with thread, feathers and roadkill.

Well I did get enlightened on one area I found interesting.

The many branches of the Clinton river.

Above water, below water, in the river, on the side of the river. I think I found the North branch, South branch, And the Middle branch all in the same spot! laugh.gif laugh.gif
