Its been a good week for fishing topwater terrestrials.
Started off last saturday fishing with a couple of friends from Christian Fly Fishers. We caught a lot of fish on beetle patterns, nothing huge, but I believe each of us got a slam. Two of my prettiest fish came on a para beetle.
This healthy brown was sipping bugs under an overhanging tree canopy.

This colorful brookie liked the beetle also.

Today, I took a long lunch break and cast for a few minutes in a little creek close to me. Caught a few redeyes and was about to leave when this smallie slammed my terrestrial popper. I've caught several good fish on it this year.

Troutman is being modest....:biggrin:
I was with him on the Christian Fly Fishers trip and he had the trout's "number" that day. Watching him cast that glass rod of his was like poetry in motion!

Can I get some info on Christian fly fishers?? Sounds like something I'd really like to get into. Thanks!
