Louis-

that one brings back some memories...my 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!

Louis,

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
Catskill fly fisher for fifty-five years.
