I am driving beside a creek in E Tenn today and I saw a dimple in the water. Surely not !!
I stop the Tahoe and another rise !! Then a BWO flys by. I put on the waders in record time, grab my already strung up St Croix and get in tha water

In short --- Had 8 bites -- hooked 5 and landed 3

I had about 25 minutes of the BWO's and when they quit, ... They threw the breaker switch. Game over !
Back to snow melt mode :(

It is hard to tell Yawl what a pleasure it was to not have to de-ice the guides and actually get a few bites .

I guess it just must be clean living

and that is why fishermen watch the stream more than the road when creekside!
