July 16th, 2014

Due to weather and home projects, I didn’t fish between June 11th and July 11th. That’s just wrong.

However, from my experiences this past weekend…

-streams are, generally, in great shape
-the gnats have been obscene, but there seem to be spots where they’re worse than others and a little wind can go a long way
-hoppers! There are a variety of sizes of hoppers now, but there are some adults already and we caught a lot of nice-sized trout casting hoppers. There are also some small, bright green grasshoppers, probably a size 10?

Didn’t take a single picture…

I was fishing a hopper very similar to the Letort Hopper but with legs. It was getting some great strikes. I bought it a long time ago and it was my last one, so it’s time to learn to tie these.
