Sipsey river, AL
Early morning on the Sipsey.........

Pretty nice rainbow - caught on #20 elk hair

One more.........

Who says the Sipsey doesnt have good rainbow fishing??

I want to say thanks to the Riverside Fly Shop for the flies and help.

Hey BF,
Good looking fish. Were they only hitting dries, or did you not try anything down? These fish always put up a good fight too. Glad to see there's still some decent fish this late in the summer. Thanks for the report and pictures.

That river shoreline sure has smoothed out, too ::)

I caught some on drys and some just below the surface.

The really smooth surface was my driveway after I got home......and just before that rainbow hit the frying pan on my grill!!

:P A quick release into the grease is a nice way to end a day, occasionally.
