Thanks guys. As is most often the case, the best fishing stories are usually not about the actual fishing. The day went predictably. While we did enjoy a handful of hours without heavy rain falling on our heads (and the hail refrained from a repeat visit), the damage was done. The Tuck rose quickly from the morning rains and turned to chocolate milk before we got too far along.

Chris dredged nymphs down the seams and I, subscribing to fyshsytr's theory, threw streamers at the banks. We each caught a few, but just a few.

At one point Chris boated three in a row, nymphing 5 feet from the boat, while I continued to pitch 30 feet to the banks. I wondered aloud what was wrong with this picture - what kind of idiot was I, not switching to what seemed to be working. Jason's deadpan response was "You like to cast."

It seemed a good enough answer to me (and, actually, a correct one) and we continued on, unchanged.

Looked like a good fishery, indeed. If I lived 30 mins away, I'd hit it a lot. And I agree 100%, a little rain can make things better. Ah, that we had only had a little.

Aren't good steelheading days always rotten weather? At least, in my experience, good steelheaders aren't happy unless it's rottten. Just sayin'.

Remind me never to fish with your friend. And you sure must have some strange weather patterns over there, JP.

I'd fish with you any day, Davo. My kinda guide.

I'll add that while the weather was ****, the company was great and the float was fabulous, fish or no.

Living in central North Carolina, if I didn't fish hot, humid, and still, I wouldn't fish all summer. I know a few largemouths that wouldn't mind that.

I just don't like that crackly, electrical stuff falling out of the clouds.

Glad to hear you had a fun float in spite of the conditions and less than enthusiastic fish!! Your welcome in my boat anytime, love clients and fishing partners who are willing to roll the dice!!

As Fyshstykr and Mrs Fysh can attest, I sometimes do the bad days without rain gear!! Though in my own defense it was not in my boat but theirs and there was no sign of rain at the put in! It was a cold last couple of miles to the take out though!!

Fysh

Might just be in my head but I think that ice cold rain lasted longer than 5 minutes. Being the only one with out rain gear it might have just seemed longer to me!!
