For When Size Doesn't Matter

I had started this fly with the intention of a small salt water bait fish but in the middle found myself straying towards the river/trout side of a streamer. it should in either arena

Nothing special here just in the streamer tying mood right now.

8th Inning Stretch

Met up with jake and chris for hopefully some streamer chucking. we made the long drive only to find the river as low as i've ever seen it and as it turned out there were still a bunch of fish on redds, which made for some shitty fishing. were we able to find a bunch of fish also stacked up in holes but they weren't overly receptive. mananged a few nymphing but we all got bored with the un-sporty fishing and chose to go elsewhere. were we ended up is were we should've been all day. in the last 3 hours of the day or so we chucked meat at some big and willing fish. chris lost a couple of brutes jake got a smaller fish and i ended up with a beautiful cutt. the highlight of the day though was watching chris school those big fish and then get schooled in return. basically we screwed up by fishing the first 7 innings on some crap water and only the last couple of innings on the quality stuff.

Post Spawn Streamers

I've spent the last 6 months living in saudi arabia so fishing has left a little to be desired. i hooked up with jake and scott for some post spawn fishing. from the brown spawn till about mid feb. i always nymph cause the streamer fishing just doesn't produce for me. the word i have been getting is that fish are still being caught on meat. we all threw streamers with some success, i also nymphed for a short minute will some success as well. we were all surprised that we did as well as we did with streamers. we did see one really big fish but none of us could get it to even flinch at our offerings. it felt good to put on some waders and boots and fish again
