    Default 2019 Driftless Pictures and Reports

    I got out with Itchmesir on the opener, fishing was tough had to work for them. Not a lot of midge hatches or risers. Water temp 38 degrees.
    I was using my 3wt and drift 3/4 clicker reel and 5x powerflex tippet. The lighter weight helped the presentation and I swung a couple up too but the most consistent success came from a size 20 tungsten zebra midge.

    I lost the largest fish on the small midge, got to see him, but he was a fighter and it’s so hard to keep a big fish like that pinned on a size 20 fly.



    Working on a new prototype winter wet fly, proved successful on a tough winter day. One nice brown took it.



    I caught way fewer brook trout in 2018 than 2017 and I was starting to get worried. My favorite fish from last Saturday, this fish warmed my heart.


    Sometimes it’s not the largest fish or epic battles that are the most satisfying.

    Tight Lines this season, UF
