Up close and personal

Spent a few days on the weber this week testing some paterns. Ive been using a grey soft hackle size 14 and 16 instead of a sow. It seems that this week at least they are just as effective. Enjoy the shots.

Strange Spring days on the ogden

We had a heck of a time trying to get free to fish today, finally my mom was going to be home to watch my son. I had my daughter Nelly and Johns boy Skylar with me as we headed out at about 430pm for the ogden. We have a nice nice deep drag in the middle of monroe park that we like to hit. Its very kid friendly. We walked up and i got Sky all ready and showed him where and how to throw his bugs to keep from getting tangled. His third pass through and the indy sank, he set and bang it was "fish on". A nice little rainbow for his first fish of the year on the fly rod. Cool thing is, Sky had seen his dad and i tying up flies so he had tied all his own stuff. The fish took a sow bug that he tied way too big and with no red thread, i think it was gold, cool. He was set so i went up to the next rock threw in and boom, within a few cast ive got a fight on. This fish would not come off the bottom. All said and done i had a nice 15 inch bow to net, he loved him some sow bug too. The strange part was that other than a quick on and off for Sky a while later, that was it. No more fish for you.

Couple more from the 7th march, John, Randy, Steve, and Ken were in the group today. Read the next post for the details. These are just a few extra pics that wouldnt go on the post below.

Spring on the weber river

Well we went up to the weber, to one of our new favorite spots, the section just above echo . The favorites are still large soft hackles sz 6-8 and sow bugs grey sz 14-16. Its been warm but today it dropped back to 30 or so and the rainbows which we had been seeing were no where to be found today. But the browns, whites and cutts were here. I caught several nice browns and two cutties. Cutts were smallmaybe 12 inches, but I caught 5 browns over 16 and two were 18. Still looking for a 20 incher upthere. Great day, lots of fun..

Weber river in the evening

Fished on the weber today for the last 3 hours of light. Caught all our fish on buggers. The bigger brown hit right at dark and gave me one hell of a fight.
