Got out to the Clinch for the evening. We fished from about 5pm until about 8:30p. Both of us caught about a dozen and half apiece. Of the 15-16 fish I landed, about 4-5 of those were in the slot. I LDR'd my biggest airborne after the hookup. Seagull landed a 16" bow on a comparadun. There was a small but steady rise throughout the later hours. Initially fish on nymphs, then we both switched over to dries. I had taken my pliers off my vest and did not have them to remove flies or pinch down barbs so needless to say I bit off about 6-7 nice comparaduns that were hooked within their mouths. Oh well, good thing I tie! Flies appeared to still be the larger E. invaria, so maybe we will still get some E. dorthea for a few more weeks?
I am a great admirer of spectator sports, especially on television; it keeps the riffraff off the trout streams.
