AJ,

Your flies look great and they (I hope) will catch you some fish. Just the fact that you went too all the trouble to make some up is very flattering and I must thank you for your kind words.

I just came back from fishing late run silvers and the Freight Train was the ticket on this outing. Below is a blushing silver but I was happy to have it, the fish went off like a fresh one and it hit that fly like a Freight Train

All together 5 fish were landed and there were another 4 who hit but were not hooked. Oddly though no trout or char were caught.............

Nope just the jacket

The vest is not new. I sent it back for a 're-finish' because after 10 years of use it looked really bad. With all the little flaps and nooks & crannies I wanted to have it done by the company. The re-wax cost 50 dollars but when I got the vest back I thought it was a new one. So if after ten years yours looks all dried out and ratty it can be made new again for a fee. The jacket is the one they replaced and I was warm and happy in that the past few days. Morning temperatures were around 28* and the highs were about 37. The days were perfect with sun and blue skies, below is a picture from Wednesday at around 5:30 PM.

This was taken yesterday, Thursday, at about 6:00 PM. I was into a pretty good bunch of fish and didn't want to quit but I did shortly after the picture was taken. It was a matter of being able to return to the boat launch and get loaded while there was still some daylight.

I meant to say jacket...Prefer to think of it as and age thing with no direct correlation to my intelligence.

Hi Casey

It's getting cold as always but I sense I can still get a few days trouting in before it's all a thing of the past.

We are still seeing a fair number of late silvers and it seems that I know where to find them but Nancy gets the bright ones. Here she is with one of her fish from the trip. All of her fish were like this one and all of mine were blush..............

I'm happy to see her catch them because she toughs it out from the morning low at 26* to the afternoon heat at 37*.

My fiancee always outfishes me and I'm the one who taught her how to fish... I can't wait for her to pick up fly fishing, I'm already catching fish on whatever flies she ties...
