Default nice nite to fish

So I came home after work to find a house full of in-laws, so was a great time to head to the creek. In one spot was some activity, so i tried a para adams...nothing....tried a regular adams with the same result. Tried a BWO and got a couple hits, then lost it on a tree branch in the water, so then tied on a para BWO and wow! Action!

caught one here also, right off the road.
All in all a great 90 minutes!! Even my casting was in good form, with tighter loops and better presentations.

Sounds like some good detective work to finally arrive at some fish! Fun looking water you have there, seeing obstructions like that beaver dam shouts "Big brown" for sure!

As far as the detective work, I meant with fly selection! And wish you good luck with the gobblers! I haven't done much hunting lately due to too much fishing!
