Re: Steelhead or Lake Run Fish (local)
I don't have a lot of experience, but I have cast to some pods for long periods of time and even had the drift drag a fly across their backs with no action. * On the other hand, I have caught most of my fish from groups. *The only 2 patterns that I have observed is the more surface ripple the more likely I am to get a hit and I have yet to get a hit from a pod of more than 5 fish.. *Also, the brighter the sky, the smaller the fly. *I usually try a bugger with a nymph or egg dropper just to cover my bases. * They can be incredibly frustrating fish, but worth the wait.
To Miss Nancy - she hated fishing, but loved a fisherman.
