We had to deal with the bright sun for most of yesterday.  Nymphing was the best method early.  When the air temperature rose in the afternoon we had a lot of flying ants coming out of the ground.  Some found their way to the water making some fish happy.  You were still better off finding shaded banks and protected areas.  There were some olives mixed in plus a few isonychias here and there.  On the Main we didn’t see any on particular but that stuck out but the fish seemed happy to eat an isonychia.  Today will be a little warmer but otherwise a repeat of yesterday.  Hopefully more ants!  Tomorrow we may see an afternoon shower which should bring back our olives in good numbers.
