    The trout were going crazy.

    The larva were struggling to change to insects on the surface.

    They had a little yellow tint to them.

    My buddy John knew exactly what to throw.

    He put on a cinnamon caddis and put a dropped off of it.

    the dropper was 5x.

    He fished it subsurface upstream.

    The fish pounded it.

    He lost 2 very nice trout ...

    He stayed in one place and fished for almost 2 hours.

    15 browns to hand and almost 40 other hits and 13 long line releases.


    WHAT did he use as a crane fly imitation?

    I know....

    What do you think he used?

    He used exactly these.

    We went back yesteday

    We went during the same time frame of the hatch and a little
    downstream where there was deeper water.. The hatch started
    one hour later due to a cloud cover.
