After a rough morning, I decided I needed to relax. I headed out to my favorite local creek for a little stress relief. Upon arriving, I found twelve million dudes in the area I intended to fish, so I had to get creative. I headed to a spot I hadn't fished in months and it paid off. I had the stretch of creek to myself and fish rising to small olives and midges. After a few drifts with no love shown, I made a quick pattern change and it was go time. I managed to land quite a few decent fish with my last being one of, if not my largest fish ever from this creek. A long leader, light tippet and small flies were the keys to success today. I only had my iPhone with me, so pictures are far from perfect. Enjoy.
First of the afternoon
One of my best fish ever from this creek. That is a Brodin Gallatin net and that fish is over 14 inches long, a really good fish in this creek.
