Midges a Success!
This year I have been trying new things while flyfishing. Never tried #18 or 20's or 22's before. Thought they were too small for fish to mess with. Wrong! Took these today at Savage River with a #20 Grey Midge and #20 Creme Midge. Had one chase a #22 Cream Midge but I tried to set the hook too soon and took the fly away from him. I've been trying for these guys several times on previous outings and couldn't get them. Today was my turn!
"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...because only in the woods can I find solitude without lonliness..." Robert Traver 1964 (Judge John Voelker)
