This morning, I lost a decent looking rainbow, less than 2 kilograms, in snaggy water between the Jones and Asian Pools.
Monday evening, I'd fished the Reed Pool, for no known bites.
Friday evening, I fished all the way through the south side of the Bridge Pool. Some contact could have been bite(s), but probably was rock. A nymphing stepped in front of me for ~6 casts until he understood that I was wetlining and moving quickly downstream.
The nymphing angler had no known bites.
I saw one recovering rainbow hooked and landed in ~10 seconds, and quickly released.
A green/red Rabbit, lost on this morning's snag, was the only fly I used, and these were my first attempts this year.
Thanks to Jason Bleibtreu for working on the
Riverbirches Lodge webcam
now has 478 patterns of trout flies tied on Kamasan, Mustad, and Tiemco hooks.
