December fishing

Pulled into the parking lot and got the rig together. Walked over to the stream and it wasn't too crowded.  I even got my favorite run.  Made a few casts and got nothing.  After a while guys were just showing up and fishing right next to me.  I hate that crap so I reeled in and headed back to the truck. 

While almost at the parking lot. I saw Mike pull in. Told him its too crowded and we headed up stream. 

The rises were few and far between so I stuck with nymphs and eggs. Tried about half a dozen holes and finally got one on an egg.  When pulling him out of the net I realized he only had one eye. 

Tried a couple more holes and decided to head out. Not a very productive day. But it was nice to be out.

Sunday Morning

Mike set up some fishing trough Instagram. So last night I tied up some BWO emergers and Al's Rats.  

I got there early and hit the stream.  Didn't see a single bug come off and sporatic rises. First cast and got a trout to follow the fly but not take it.  Tried a couple different holes and missed three. By that time Mike called and said he would be there in a half hour so I head back to the truck and put on a new leader. 

Mike showed up and two other guys also.  Pafishing and signatureflyco from Instagram.  We all headed back to the stream. Ended up getting a little brown. 

Got it one the BWO tied last night. 

A little bit later Mike hooked up and landed one. 

I ended up watching people fish more then doing it myself. Mike got a couple more and I had to heading out.
