    Default Quill Gordons are on!

    Took a long lunch hour today and drove over to the LR. I had my little lamiglass 3wt with me and some dries. The Quill Gordons were everywhere and a few fish were rising. Nothing consistant, but then it was only 1pm and it usually gets better as the day goes on. I fished about 30 min. and hooked a couple of small 8-10" bows in my favorite run. It was good to catch some wild colorful fish again after messing with the local tailwater stockers for the past 2 months.
    Make sure you stock up with plenty of grey body mayflies and frogs fanny, cause it looks to be a great month of dry fly action!

    Question Troutman

    Troutman,
    Do you know of any openings at your work?
    I would like to take my lunch hour on the LR too.
    I'm not jealous at all so don't even think that.

    now that BITES......the quills are hatching and it is only a SEVEN hour drive....I am soooooooooooo envious of those who live close enough to hit the park from a casual drive.....have fun guys and gals and post lots of pics and stories for us unfortunate souls......

    hoping to make it down late march early april......save me a few fish to catch on dries......
