Larry is No Longer a Smallmouth on the Fly Virgin

Larry caught his first smallmouths on the fly all on a size 8 soft hackle wooly bugger.  I caught a few also on a Murray's Marauder tied on a #6 scud hook and on a pine squirrel streamer.  Not a bad day of fishing considering it was about 45 degrees out and overcast.  Are we really supposed to get 4" - 6" of snow tomorrow.  Crazy stuff!

Went Fishing on The Opening Day of Trout and a Crayfish Hatch Broke Out

Crayfish hatches are great because you usually have the stream to yourself.

These were the first smallmouth on the fly this year!  All fish hit while using a very slow retrieve.  I would let the fly drift and make tiny strips as the fly swung in the current.  Missing are three pigs that came unglued.  I really need to start using a strip set.
