After work session.

Got out after work yesterday.  I went to a stream I have yet to fish this year, but has been good in the past.  Within two casts I landed my first trout.   Walked down stream, casting into holes here and there.  The fish were there and they were hungry.  All fish were caught nymphing.

I did see a couple sulfurs coming off the water and was excited to finally hit a hatch. But it never developed and ended the day with nice rainbows and browns.

Took a while to figure what they wanted.

I was away on vacation last week.  Got back yesterday and wanted to get out.  

Went out today and I couldn't figure out what they wanted.  Finally got one to take an egg. After that nothing for a while. Switched up to the most natural flies I had and finally got hits again. Trying to set to hook with size 24 nymphs is not easy and I need practice on it.
