After a long week of temps in the 90s and extremely low water levels in the White River and adjoining tributaries, a few days of rain and cold nights have really turned the trout back on. Found myself on a few nice rainbows later in the evening.

When zooming your first photo in attempt to better see the fly you were using, I couldn't help but notice something tied to your keeper ring:

So, what the devil is that?

I was using a dark bodied March Brown. That was what I caught the big guy in the first picture on. The other ones in that picture were caught on a #10 pheasant tail and a #14 Grey Wolff. In the second picture I got him using, again, the #14 Grey Wolff.

The first picture was out of the Second Branch of the White River. A little tributary that feeds in from the north. The second picture was pulled up out of the White River but pretty far west before the tribs feed in.

This place has some fantastic freestone streams that are just bursting with life right now. Trico's, BWO, and Caddis are buzzing all around and getting the trout to make some theatrical rises!

The keeper ring doesn't have anything attached to it. I think that's just a piece of grass that was laying on the ground. Good question though!

Heading back out again tonight too. Just got a nice steady rain all day! Hopefully I'll have some pictures to post this time. Keep your fingers crossed for a nice brown.

Just because I'm feeling geeked today for some reason, maybe because I'll be near the Au Sable tomorrow and will be able to ease my troubled mind, I'm doing a little house cleaning here...Nit-picking..
#14 Grey Wolff
It's Wulff after Mr. Lee Wulff who gave us that series of attractor patterns...Maybe I should slow down on the caffinated teas here at work! :)

At first glance I thought that fly was an old Iron Fraudator (Quill Gordon) but really couldn't see it so clearly...I think Roger was afraid you were using bacon strips to snag your trout there or, heaven forbid!, Berkley's Power Bait...I think his heart was palpitating there for a moment or two! He's breathing easier now, no doubt!


Good luck this evening!

Indeed, very nice fish! Noticed you've got an LL Bean rod in the photo. How do you like that thing?? I ask because I just noticed the rods at my local LL bean store. They seem reasonable, but just hoping for some feed back since you apparently uses one. Thanks!
