Default Fishing Kelly's No Tellum Spring Creek

Wednesday I did a road trip over to Idaho to fish with Kelly Glissmeyer from the forum, it had been a couple years since Kelly and I had fished together and I was itching to take another crack at that spring creek. When we got on the water the heads were popping up everywhere, after looking at the surface of the water there were multiple hatches coming off, it looked like a trout smorgasbord was being served up. We started off with Kelly's para-emerger followed by a couple of small nymphs. Figuring out what the fish were eating was tough (now I truly understand why fly fisherman like the challenge of fishing spring creeks), we must have changed up the offerings a dozen times and never did get in the groove. We each got several hits, Kelly landed one medium sized rainbow, I had 4-5 hits but didn't bring a fish to the net. The next day I fished the South Fork in the am and it was a bit slow so I decided for some revenge and headed back to the spring creek. This time the conditions were completely different, there were heads coming up but not at the rate as the day before and the only hatch I could see was a good calibaetis hatch. I rigged up with Kelly's para-emerger, a BH calibaetis nymph and a Tom Rosenbauer's Rabbits Foot Emerger. That was the ticket, at least until the hatch died out. I brought three to the net and lost another 8 due to various reasons (aerial acrobatics, diving in the weeds, poor hook sets, you name it). It was a fun fishing trip, but most of all it was great getting a chance to meet up with Kelly and best of all getting to fish together again.

Great to be on the water again with mcnerney. We had a blast albeit a bit of a skunking. Glad Larry wiped the slate clean the next day. Its always a treat to fish with a friend in such a beautiful spot. I've got some pics, but I've been too busy to get them ready to post. Give me a day or so and I'll show you mcnerney in all his flyfishing glory - the guy has a killer cast, even if he's a lefty

Kelly.
