Such big water, big fish, and such tiny flies huh.
Yes indeed! With normal tactics we found landing the fish to 18" on those tiny RS-2's worked. There wasn't much in hatches coming off yesterday, but I noticed these gray stillborn nymphs floating in the water and that is when I changed out to the RS-2 and started catching fish, but ever so often these big browns would come out of the weed beds and rip through the pool chasing the cutties off. I hooked three of those big guys but each time after the hook set they would make a run straight for the weed beds on the opposite side, I would palm the reel to try and keep them out of the weeds but something always broke, but it was fun anyway.
