The rain missed us yesterday but the wind did not.  It was tough until the gusts dropped in the early evening.  Mid-day we saw a decent number of Isonychias and Pseudos on the water but the wind blew them off the surface before the fish could key in on them.  Luckily the they are calling for very little wind today which should definitely help the dry fly fishing.  The sulphurs are still going strong in Deposit during the mid afternoon and if we do get the predicted brief thunderstorm today has very good potential.  We are seeing a few Golden Drakes get eaten too – it’s great to get to throw big flies again.
