Sorry about that. I followed the forum code guide. Link seems to work now.? I'll figure it out someday. Feel free to comment or make suggestions, still learning the fly and the photo/videos. Thanks

You had some very amazing fly fishing! Would you mind sharing with us the name of that river, what state it is in and what section you fished? Were all those trout caught in one day or was that video a compilation of a couple days of fishing? Do you know if they are wild or stocked trout?

Thanks wbranch. - I'm in Connecticut, the main trout fisheries in Connecticut are the Housatonic & Farmington River +lakes etc. I'm local on the Farmington River and fish the small streams as well. Fished it for over 30 years mainly with spinners but have been learning the fly last two years. We are well-stocked but have wilds,natives,browns, rainbows, brookies juvenile salmon. This was a few days compiled in July.

WOW, what a great video! Shot with a Go-Pro or other wearable camera, I really felt like I was there, I swear I could feel some of those fish fighting! Probably helps that I'm watching it on a 22" home flatscreen versus a tiny mobile device screen...Does look like a mix of stockers and wild fish, but most seemed to put a good bend in your rod! What outfit were you using?

And danged, you have a good doggie, he listens pretty well! I read a story some years ago about a couple of guys who took a dog fishing and the darned pooch went after every single fish they hooked, in fact retrieving a few in his jaws...

It can be amazing how deadly the dry fly can be, and not just on trout, caught many a fat panfish and some really good-sized smallmouth (18") on dries. I've actually fished right next to worm dunkers with a fly rod, in some instances all dry, and pulled in panfish 10 or 20 to one compared to them..."What are you using??"

:oD

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Thanks JMD - My work horse outfit for my main spots is an Orvis Access 9' 5wt.

The dog is very well trained and a good fishing buddy, who listens most of the time. But, as John Gierach once wrote (paraphrasing) "There's no such thing as a good fishing dog, we're just blinded by the love of our dog" still, he's my buddy and he deserves to come out sometimes.

I try to match the hatch (BWO, Hendricksons, Sulphurs, ISO, Caddis) but sometimes the hatch is simply Adams, Royals, nymphs, streamer etc.

The Adams is an old favorite of mine, works when there are no hatches and sometimes when there is one! The Royal Wulff is a particular favorite, have had it work when many other flies were refused and got an 18" smallmouth on a big #6 last summer on it. If I don't see much hatching, my favorite searching pattern besides those two is the good old Elkhair Caddis, usually a #12-16 in various colors but tan/light brown is usually a good bet.

Again, great video, like I said, felt like I was there! You have some nice water to fish there.

Posts: 106Yeah, I gotta ck that out. I' m racking & packing moving, I hate it. On my brakes I been popping on the site, ta rest my stress of the move. I also used ta spin fish, back in the day. Got bored with it, so I went & got hooked on the fly, and really ain't looked back. My fish are smaller now, but my rewards are un-explain-able... I still have all my spin gear, still have my memories of some slamming trout, but on the fly,I found the peace,& pleasures this guy was looking for. And by the looks of your video,your hooked as well. Hell a blind man peaking threw muddy water could see all that.. So ya have fun with bro, it is what it is. A wonderful sport, if ya play right. And never stop, stopping ta photo the flowers & the frogs, nice touch.
later Milt....

What a great video! Excellent editing too, not a bunch of dead footage of you walking around in the woods...action packed!

Those camera's are really cool, someday I will step up to one. CJ
