Default Little River 9/1

I pulled into metcalf bottoms just after sunup. There were people already getting set up for the day. And I thought I had an early start!

Got this guy on the third cast. It was pretty cool, I saw a trout swim up and refuse my beetle, then another took it a second later.



My legs are still a little burned out from saturday so I stayed close to the truck this time. Drive til I saw water I liked, pull over, hike down a bit and fish back to the truck.



Tried a soft hackle pheasant tail with little result. An hour without a bite, I switched to a glass caterpillar since it was a stud on sat with the brookies. That and I wanted to see what the browns thought. I didn't have to wait long...



The glass caterpillar was getting a take here and there. I tied on a San Juan and pulled out a baby brown off a brush pile



I finished my day once again at a cascade, not far from elkmont. The road was getting thick with touristas and spots to fish were getting thin. I caught 7 total, with two browns and 5 bows.

Great report and very nice fish! That brown looks like it is getting colored up already. Here comes fall!

Nice brown. Looks like you had a good day considering you didn't have go to far from your truck. Care to share the recipe for the glass caterpillar? Is it simply glass beads on a hook with some dubbing?

Not at all. Its pretty generic lol. Size 10 2XL nymph/streamer hook, slip the glass beads on and a drop of super glue gel to hold them in place.

Thanks for the tip.
Looks like you tippet is larger diameter closest to the eye. Just illusion?

Illusion. I was using 7X most likely, possibly 6. For trout I rarely go any bigger unless I am retying a leader.
