Glad you were able to get out and spend some time with your son. Catching tons of fish on a fly is great; but, spending the time with your family is even better. I think Friday was a black fly day due to that late-short schedule. Search up some of the black fly patterns and try them during those periods.

Hope this helps........
The black fly hatch is easy to spot if the water is fairly calm. It will look as if there is a light sprinkle of rain on the water.

Thanks for sharing your tips and insight Billj!
