Default Re: Midges a Success!

Caught a rainbow in a very slow, very clear pool today with a #18 Cream Midge. The first presentations were not real smooth and sometimes skidded over the top of him and of course he wouldn't take it. I moved over carefully and re-presented it with a straight cast and just glided directly over the top of him and comes up and sips it in! I've never used midges before and never caught fish this late in the season here before either!
"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)
