Tubers to the left...I like to fish from a boat on Little Virginia because it provides a high platform to spot cruisers...

Leftover Klink...these were a surprise for me. I tied these up a number of years ago and have used them in a number of rivers where they have provided some success...they absolutely killed on Little Virginia in Brown, Black and Olive #14-#16.

The EW flows look alright in that pic but the reservoir sure is low. Went up to Stampede and Boca Reservoirs near Truckee last week and it actually scared me. I've never seen either as low as they are right now.

Excellent ties. Ive been tying a whole bunch of soft hackles in anticipation for my trip up to the Sierras in a couple weeks. May I ask how you're fishing those on the lakes?
