November gold


The gray days of November are here.  It sure felt colder then the thermometer was showing with overcast, stormy looking skies, and a steady breeze.

Yesterday, the game all subsurface and covering lots of water. Definitely not numbers day but fish were caught in 3/4 locations I fished.  A heavy anchor to get the fly down and moving slow along the bottom of seams and soft creases and underneath the leaf hatch was essential.  The trailing foam egg was the fly that sealed the deal most of the time.  The browns are looking very colorful these days!

    1. Alan - correct, I was up on the Farmington looking for some fish sipping olives but didn't find any.

  6. Snow is on the ground, and the foam Egg is the ticket. Beautiful colors here and on the previous post. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Walt - yes it is, the thermometer on the kitchen window reads a frosty 22 this am. I guess we won't be seeing any more days in the 60's for a while!
