Fishing Report

You can always count on me to be honest... even when I pull a bone-head deal like I did today. I thought the conclave started today. Oh well, I'm all setup and ready to go at least.

I went by Blue Ribbon Fly Shop today to pick up a couple of things including a pair of barb plyers. Dale Fulton doesn't seem to age- he looks great. I told them what I did- they said someone came in the shop a week ago Friday and asked why there wasn't anyone at the fairgrounds... he was there a week early.

Then I headed to the handicap access on the Norfork. Only a few cars there. Great day to be on the water. I fished my way up to the shoal at the house?? not sure what that's called. There's an island- I fished the outside or bigger water. 6x tippet, pinch-on indicator about 40 inches deep, a small split 20 inches below the float and a #22 brown thread midge did the best. Caught a few on both a #20 red zebra and a #22 red thread midge. Nothing on scuds or dries. Did catch 2 on a #12 orange crackleback. Fished from 1 till the water came up about 5 pm. Caught 15 rainbows and one cutt. Nothing over 13 inches. Missed another 20 fish.

Conclave starts at 9 am tomorrow, if anyone wants to know.

Suurrrrreee you thought it started today... I've used that "mistake" myself on my wife. ;)

That's a pretty doggone familiar picture there, Phil. You went to some good water. If you go DOWNstream, there is a pretty good hole just below a small "fall."

Just don't tell anyone I told you that.... sssshhhhhh... ;)
