Default Re: old guy problem - seeing #20 midge dries

Wow....thanks for all the feedback. Just returned from a skunking over in the Sierra foothills. No noses or backs showing at all in the bright sun and no subsurface love either.

Thanks to all for the links and suggestions. The parasol emerger I remember from a previous thread and looks like a dynomite bug. I've used hi-vis posts of various colors with limited success. Someone mentioned hot pink or red and at dusk in the last light that does indeed help me...

After reading the feedback it seems clear what I need to do is fish more and get better at what I'm already doing...and also add some tools like the greased line tactic and parasol emerger.

Thanks again! -Mike
