The leaves are changing and we are getting some of the best color I’ve seen in several years. The fish are also changing colors and are starting to sport the colors of the spawn.
This fish above was hooked on a pink San Juan Worm tied on our new 839 Streamer hooks Size #14 heavy wire (now available on our web shop http://theflyfishing-store.com $10 for 50 count). This past month a steady one unit of water has been running very consistently and with few breaks looks as though it will continue to do so. Perhaps the weekends will bring some minimum flow as did one day this week.
The past two days rainfall has caused some runoff. I will be on the water the next two days and of course I will start with a SJ Worm below the creeks in the faster water.
The unreal egg is another fly I will be using in the faster water this weekend. In areas such as Cane Island or Blue Hole an egg attractor (apricot yarn) with an orange tungsten bead tied on a Jig Hook HSCJ516 #12 hook and either a ruby or glitter midge below that.
Check out our web shop as we have added lots of new products such at Deer Hair, Veevus Body Quill and of course our new Barbless Hooks, Chemically sharpened with wider gapes black nickel. And you get 50 hooks for only $10.00 Give them a try! If you don’t like them return them and I’ll give you your money back on any unused ones.
If you are familiar with the firehouse hooks these are the same ones.
