Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve been out fishing….been real busy in the shop with rod building. Mary Ann just finished building her second bamboo rod, a beautiful 7′ 9″ 4 wt Progressive Medium-Action rod. What a great taper…casts dries like a dream. She cast dry flies hard for a few hours while I took out my 9′ 0″ 3 wt Czech Nymphing rod with #20 zebra nymphs and Bead Head Pheasant Tail Nymphs. I picked up several fish on nymphs, but there was nothing hatching and she was fishless on dries. But, she eventually went over to small nymphs, and her new rod handled them great. And….she got several fish to the net. As her first fish on her new rod she picked up a nice 13” whitefish. After that, several feisty rainbows. Here are a few photos from our day.
