|Archie says this one is perfect|
As the day continued, Leo and I stayed with the plan. We were there until dark no matter what and would make sure that everything possible was considered.
3:30 Nothing and we moved up river to give the pool a rest.
5:30 Nothing and we headed back to the pool.
There was one theme to this explosion and that was all the fish were taken on an Early Black Stonefly nymph. This has been the go to fly for some time and was tried all day long without results. As the feast was happening we bantered about Little Stony this and Little Stony that. In a very clean environment where the water stays cold the Early Black Stone will be seen. This little stonefly is effective in sizes 16 and 14 and is a true emerging insect. The activity will last as long as the water stays cold.
All I can say about this day is that it was perfect. The fish, the river, the fly, and most of all the company and friendship. Perfect.........
