I just got back from the loyalsock, and after over 10 hrs spent waving a stick I managed 1 fish. I honestly can't remember the last time i have been beat up that bad by a stream this time of the year.(no i haven't made it to the letort yet) Has anybody fished it recently? Are there still fish in it? Several other seemingly competent anglers I spoke with were sharing my frustrations, and there was one report where a gentleman caught well into the double digits.( which i believe he was full of $#%&). Even the old standby attractors didn't even get a sniff. If any one has any advice I would really appreciate it. For the record I feel i'm pretty honest with myself on how I fished for the day and will accept getting beat up when my game is off, but yesterday was an exception and I feel the casts were accurate, the flies where they needed to be and they had an opportunity to sample dozens of tasty patterns.

Jeff, I think we all have days like this which leave us wondering what we might have done different, and I also believe, very strongly, that sometimes the answer is nothing. There are so many factors that are out of our control and that will never be known. This I do know, there will be good times in the future as well. Tie some flies and get ready for that day when there are so many fish think you'll run out before you can catch them all.
