that one brings back some dad served alongside British troops in the CBI Theatre of WWII, in the Engineer Corp and he had a LOT of stories to tell.

He'd relate terms such as 'konk' for a nose, 'pong' for a real stink, and the bollocks you mentioned, among others- some of which were pretty scatological in meaning.

back on the fly, streams and rivers in W MI are slooowly receding after a season's worth of rain in one week- I haven't been in the water for a while now, simply too high and un-wadeable when flows are 900% of normal.

Yeah, it's been raining for days here. The little spring creeks sometimes fish well as they are rising or dropping with some color. I lost a big fish in one about a month ago; perhaps it's time to go back and see if the hook will hold. Tight lines!

Here are the current levels of some of the streams you fish;

Penns - 2,530 cfs
Codorus - 248 cfs
Tully - 485 cfs Double the flow I would consider fishing
Spring Creek - 363 cfs - high but fishable with split shot
Little Juniata - 1,350 cfs about 4X the best flow
Yellow Breeches - 918 cfs

My favorite trout stream picture; below, shows what a first class trout river looks like. The lack of stream gradient means that this river is not subject to the roaring scouring floods so common here in PA. that wipe out everything in the river.
