I took a few hours out of work today to fish the Clinch since I was already working in Clinton. Met a nice man named Bob today and talked about a few flies that have been working and maybe he will check out the forum when he gets home.
From 11 am until 1:45 I landed 4 fish and had on 5 others that pulled off due to a poor hook set by me. All of the fish landed were on a olive parachute fly that I tied. No fish hit the nymph. 3 fish attempted the orange stimulator and finally after switching to the olive dry fly I had all 4 fish landed in about 30 min. 1 nice rainbow and 3 beautiful browns. Sorry I didn't get any pictures, I didn't want any proof that I skipped out on work... Maybe I shouldn't be writing this. Hmm.. Oh well.
It was a beautiful morning on the water. There was a fog that came rolling (literally) down the river that made me stop just to watch. I have never seen anything like that before. Just after the fog rolled through is when the fishing heated up. I wonder if the barometeric pressure changed and caused the fish to get hungry?
Can't wait to get back on the water the next time.
