    Default SOHO last sunday

    Been over a year since I fished the SOHO and finally convinced my son we had to go.... the flow was very fishable but the weather was less than favorable though warm enough.

    Landed a beautifully colored brown and had a great time spending the day with Rick; he has been a fly fisher since five years old and has an awesome casting stroke.... I love to watch him fish and often found myself just watching him and paying no attention to my own fly.

    Didn't see any Sulphurs and only a handfull of the BWO's the local shop claims are coming off.... fish seemed to be gorging just under the film on something I was unable to match.... but caught occasional fish on a small CDC emerger with SLF trailing shuck. Must be those wicked tiny "black flies" but they wouldn't even touch small griffith knats or zebra midges... FRUSTRATING!

    Was fishing a 2 weight so hurling large stuff was not possible; think I ought to go on the prowl with big streamers or buggers when I encounter these conditions.... next time I will be prepared.

    Anyone got a solution to the black fly problem that actually works?

    Meanwhile it seems this weekend has no favorable wading conditions on local tailwaters..... AGAIN.

    If I was the boss at TVA weekend flows would be wade fisherman friendly every weekend.... I'm too old and broken down to go rock hopping in the Park.

    same idea as billyspey but these have worked well size 22-24 in both color phases.

    Corbo,

    I have moved to Greeneville, TN. I'll be fishing the SOHO more often since I cut my distance in half. Shoot me an email if you and Rick want some company on a trip to the SOHO. I don't participate on the forum anymore, so just drop me an email.
