I really needed a stream trip today. Even if a short one. They are calling for more snow around here this week :( Took off to the DH a few counties over. Surprisingly there wasn't another soul fishing. It was sunny and the water was fairly cold. Rigged up one of those Frank Sawyer PT's under an indicator. Started drifting it thru the pockets. Got to a deep run and added some more lead. Got to the bottom and drifted several times. Finally the indicator stopped and slid sideways. Nice bow :)

Repeated the process of several drifts and a take in more deep runs.

Not a big number to hand but enough to make me glad to be outside and on the water. I believe Sawyers PT has found a spot in the box. Thanks Frank :)

That extra piece of shot probably made the difference between some bites and no bites

Good Report

I tied some of those a while back: a fun traditional tie with no thread...lots of copper wire - serves as good weight for dredging! Glad you got into the fish with 'em.
