Me lady's first real effort at fishing soho yesterday. We weren't sure if water would be fishable after .5-.75" rain in previous 24 hrs. It was fine, actually perfect with a slight stain. Reached banjo hole on Big Springs Rd around 11:00 to find falling water, also perfect.

Got a decent fish pretty quick on sz16 FBPT & a couple dink bows on same and zebra midge.

The rain and stain must have put them down somewhat; there was a decent hatch of sulfurs early afternoon but only random rises here and there most of the day. Did manage one 10" brown on a small sulfur sparkle dun.

She fished sz16 split-case sulfur nymph all day. Her first soho trout:

Always appreciate the wildlife & great outdoors -

Then this one showed up to play:

Had her shaking. Stopped not long after for a suds & lunch

Then one final brown, a hair bigger than the first one -

We'll remember this day for a long time!
