Called Curry and asked if he wanted to go back. He had to go try on tuxedos for his wedding. Young people today? Where are their priorities? ( Melanie said if I had went fishing instead of getting ready for our wedding she would have stomped my ass ;) )

I decided to go anyway :)

It was pretty still and the hatch tree was a little less giving. The water was dirty brown coffee. There was still a good bite on. The 'secret fly' was on the job as we have come to expect in this sort of a hatch. (Gonna see if some of the big distributors want to mass produce it. Look for it in shops this fall.) Hopefully we can keep it on the down low till then. Curry has been worn to secrecy. Unless it is a kid or somebody who has given him a fly before 8-)

Caught 1 G Bone landed, pulled the hook on 2 backing runs, 1 popped 10lb tippet on the first lunge :o , and several flat out misses.

The 'secret fly' came out well on other species as well. Catfish eat it too.

Now this is not just a fly for G Bones and Catfish. It also caught several sunfish and one crappie wanted to see the pattern.

Tongue out of cheek for a moment I really need this. I was my son's chauffeur today to three different appointments regarding school. Long waits in the car and reading. Almost drove me a touch crazy.

Sore arms and reel burnt hands cure a lot don't they :D

Landed two and this was the smaller. The other was probably in the mid 30's. Camera's memory card started acting up. Oh well I saw it.

Caught several dink catfish and a largemouth bass. The secret fly just keeps on producing ;)

Sunday after Church.

Image

Had a day long workshop today. Hot and lots of street hiking. Went after I got home.

A fair specimen.
Image

This was the big boy.

Image

Saw and missed a couple of smaller ones. Couldn't connect. As it cooled down a storm skirted through and killed the visibility.

Went for awhile this evening. The river was off colored as usual lately. Did manage to spot one working along. He's got a weird mouth even for a carp.

Also caught this little guy.
