Quote(s) of the Day: “I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I can’t believe I didn’t look at the river that way!”

Fishing Highlights:

A solo day for peter a couple days ago on the European set up led to today with some questions to get better at breaking down the river with this rig. When to use weight and just standard heavy nymphs. The first riffle we stepped into produced aggressive eats and multiple fish. With a little adjustment on peters line management side of things he stepped up his game to improve the drift and it dramatically change his productivity on the river. We managed multiple fish out of each run as the fish were happy and regularly eating. After lunch we had a short session and I wanted to show peter that you can fish a longer line euro rig and be just as affective, if not more than a standard rig. We focused our efforts on the far side of the river and took multiple fish out of two runs. With proper adjustments in the drift, Peter is coming to realize that euro nymphing is dry involved and a lot of fun. Thanks for another fun day my friend.

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
