Witnessed something very cool today. Someone posted in an earlier post that they saw what they thought were mayflies. Today as I was fishing I did see those mayflies, don't know what type though. This guy was fluttering in one spot about 15" above the water when from underneath a rainbow shoots straight up out of the water coming up just a couple of inches short from snatching him out of the air. I thought that was great to see. Day started off slow for me as I was trying out some flies I had tied. I caught one fish on each of the three flies I had tied. I didn't think that was too good but did stick with them for awhile. Lot of rising today so after my flies failed I went to to the dry/dropper combo and started hooking up. Lost a few flies, hook set to hard at first, then a flopping fish broke me off and took my fly. Missed several but did manage 21 for the day. Not my worst day and far from my best day. The LIR can spoil you on how easy it can be at times but for me today it was about the quality of the fishing. Targeting fish, then getting them or have a chance at getting them gives me more satisfaction then catching one after another. This was my first time out this year and definitely isn't the last.

I went out today also. Didn't keep track of numbers exactly. Caught at least 15-20. Thought I should have done better considering how many fish i saw. I was surprised by the number of insects out today. I did see one mayfly, and a bunch of little white dipterans buzzing the surface, and a bunch of black ones on my car that kinda reminded me of male mosquitoes. In the stomachs of the fish i kept I found some black dipteran pupa. I assume the same things that were on my car.

Sounds like a good day.

Fished Roaring River Saturday for the Tulsa FlyFishers winter outing. It was actually pretty tough. Made me realize I have become spoiled with the number of fish you can catch on the LI.
