The best flies were my Shrimp Pink Muddler and an olive Woolly Bugger. They both took some big bucks, but the Shrimp Muddler did better by a wide margin. Some company made the morning even more fun. David Gallipoli happened to be in the area and came by for a while, catching some nice bows on caddis and on a streamer. Another gentleman, I believe his name was Jim, was there when I got there. He gave me a blue and black Woolly Bugger, which worked surprisingly well and will remain in my arsenal for a while now. We made conversation throughout the morning, talking flies, fish, and casting... typical fisherman chat. It was pleasure fishing with him and I hope we meet again.
