A windy afternoon

Had the chance to get out for a few hours this afternoon.  The river was up quite a bit due to the heavy rains earlier in the week.  Tan caddis were being blown down the river by the stiff northerly winds so I opted to fish wets.  The first couple of fish were taken were a bead head pheasant tail and partridge.  When the caddis started showing up, I switched over to a hare's ear wet which accounted for the rest of the fish including two strong 16" inchers (bow and brown)  All told 8 were brought to the net, a nice mix of browns and bows  with a handful of others left behind.
