I fished the stream I wrote of yesterday, this time bellow the highway. I was very excited to see it in perfect condition: crystal clear, average flow, and there were midges and stoneflies all over. I saw one rise within a few minutes of my arrival and that dictated my fly choice: a foam back Humpy. The first pool was a blank, but the pool with the riser in it gave up a fish first cast, an absolutely stunning specimen that took with a nice little jump.
I ended up getting three more on the Usual, and I'm pretty confident that I'll get my 12th month dry fly fish in a couple weeks. It's so awesome to raise a fish when there are a few inches of snow on the ground.
