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.
