I took her up to Pittsburgh N.H. one time and that was a MAJOR mistake ! That relax and read a book thing only goes so far .......
That is why we are returning to Lake Placid, it works for my wife. The ski/resort/Olympic town she really enjoys. And I can fly fish the Au Sable easily!!!!!!

I don't have any more usual flies left as they go fast. But it is definitely a very under rated highly effective fly. I will tie some up in the morning and post a pic.

These three flies slayed this weekend. Lots of big browns.

Regarding the ponds, not sure, but if you look at a map and find a pond, I'd probably suggest giving it a go. I caught a brookie in a small bit of still water off the side of the road. Saw them rising and pulled over and started casting. Some guy pulled up... "Hey, just so you know, that's not part of the river... might have better luck elsewhere..."

Did just fine.

That's awesome. I to had a great weekend fishing the Au sable and Saranac rivers. Those flies are the best for this area and very easy to tie.
