Caught 2 fish on the West Branch on CDC and Elk in about a size 10 or 12. Both were the village idiots, for their jaws were ripped to shreds.

On the Beaverkill, drifted nymphs through fast water. Got one small brown, then broke off a very large fish on a big stonefly nymph. Then caught and landed a 17 inch brown on a stonefly nymph. His mouth was beat up too, and it had someone else's fly in it.

Not much insect activity, it was about 85 degrees and sunny. Some caddis on the West Branch and some big mayflies and stoneflies on the Beaver Kill.

Fat pretty fish. Nice work.
