Dry fly wild tiger Tuesday


 Well I got out yesterday in the afternoon to hit the olive hatch. The beatis were coming off very well and the fish were rising as well. I started off with a snowshoe no-hackle I tied using the olive Stella dub. The trout took the offering without refusal.  My first trout was a pleasant surprise, as it's not to common to catch a wild tiger trout. Pretty cool little fella with all the energy of tiger.

 I noticed some hendricksons coming off and watched as on was taking by an eager trout. So I swapped out for a size 12 adams. I had forgot my hendricksons at home! Luckily the forever faithful adams did the trick. It is always enjoyable to able to fish large dry flies. Not that dont enjoy small fly, fly fishing. Just something about being able to cast that country mile and be able to see your offering.
 I didnt have much time till the trout stopped rising due to the bugs no longer hatching. The wind began to pick up, the cold began to return, and with "more than four" I headed on home.

I feel like im upside down when i look at this picture.

  5. J U. Those are real beauties especially the tiger. When we were there the other day the ducks were eating the BWO's like a buffet table. I never saw ducks chowing down on Duns like that before. Can't wait for the Hendricksons.
