Good End To Labor Day

Recommended Posts

I avoided fishing all weekend until mid Monday afternoon. I hit outlet 2 around 3:00. I did the usual scuds in grey and tan. They took in a few smalled ones, but probably lost more on the hookset than I took in. What really got them was a micro egg in a peach/red dot pattern I had tied on to a hare's ear as a trailer. They absolutely loved it. As it got towards evening I stripped a brown crackleback across the current and took in two very large (at least to me) bows. I didn't measure unfortunately but they were easily towards the higher end of the slot limit. They put up a hell of a fight and was a lot of fun on my 4wt.

Main thing about the trip was that I used fluoro for the first time. I had splurged over the weekend on some 6x Orvis Mirage. What a difference! No breakoffs, great strength. I am sold. It's pricey, but seems to be worth it.
