WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE!
It has taken quite a bit work, and I am sure that there will be a few glitches here and there (such as pictures from previous blog posts mysteriously vanishing), so if you see something that is wonky, please don’t hesitate to give me a call at the shop as the site is for you, our amazing customers!
Yesterday was a picture-perfect Autumn day, which is to say bright sun, no clouds, and a variable breeze whipping the leaves into the air. While perfect in concept, those conditions do not make for an optimal day of dry fly fishing. The river did warm up around 2:00 PM, and we started seeing Stenos and Isos in pretty decent numbers, with the fish again being sporadic-yet-catchable. Today, we’re expecting some slightly warmer temps, with a few passing showers heading through the area. If the clouds hold, the Pseudos should be out en masse today, and their big Slate Drake compatriots will hopefully be in tow!
