My jaw seriously dropped... I found it odd that a brown of all species in that river would fall for something so stupid. I was even casting my shadow, and the shadow off the rod on him! Sometimes I forget why I love that river so much and that was a prime example of why.

A brookie was hangin' out with him, but as soon as I moved my rod to drop the fly behind me he scattered, the brown flickered, but continued to eat everything that came his way. Hungry little dude...

To be completely honest, a size 14 Elk Hair Caddis is the best indicator money can buy for the Caney. It's .79 at BPS and browns go NUTS over them. I've never got a strike on an EHC from anything but a brown! They're usually larger fish, too!
