Water Temp: 61
From the Ridiculous To The Sublime
I met Corey and his son Reid at the Nature Center, suited up and headed for the Hundred Yard Run. The air temperature was a cool 59 degrees and the water was clear. After some basic lessons on tension casting they began to hook up on small rainbows rising to a very small BWO hatch. They were losing fish due to improper hook sets and only landed small bows. I began switching flies and Reid landed the “ridiculous” bow in the college on an Olive BH Hares Ear. Soon after Corey landed a beautiful 17 in fatty bow on guess what? “Sublime” Olive BH Hares Ear. It was the only fly that any fish were taking. Corey hooked up on a hugh bow that popped off on the same fly. Over all it was a great day on the water. I shut down the trip when the water approached 65 degrees. It sure was fun guiding Corey and Reid and they learned a lot.
