  1. #1

    Post 8 Days on the EASTSIDE (Sierras) PT & SON...

    So...eight days over there...WIND, COLD and SNOW...LOVED IT !!! Took over 1000 photos between Michael. Aimee and myself. Here are a few and what worked for us...



    The view after a day on the EW...



    Michael and PT...



    A few of the smaller locals...



    One of the other locals...



    That would be this:



    BUFFALO JUMP ATTRACTOR...used this as a lead in a double rig nymph set-up...it slammed....



    A 'Bow...




    One of Michael's MANY Trout...



    "PINKIE" charmed 'em during the Baetis hatch...



    Michael and a nice Brown in the meadow section...



    Michael comin' up through the bend...this...worked well during the Baetis hatch 'cause Caddis were around too...



    AMBER KF GUIDE SERENDIPITY...




    An ALPERS 'BOW that jumped all over... this:



    PALINISTA...this fly took a bunch of Browns for both of us...



    Michael, up by the gauge...whackin' 'em on what was our most successful pattern....



    SIMPLY RED...



    "Hey MICHAEL, it's SNOWING !!!"...



    DEEP PURPLE worked well in the cruddy weather and failing light...




    Already packin' to GO BACK !!!...

    That was great,

    I've been a lot of places but never in the area where you were. It is a beautiful spot for sure and you guys got some nice fish to top it all off.

    Excellent,

    Jimmie,

    This is the recipe for that fly:

    SIMPLY RED…(And, PURPLE)…

    HOOK: Gamakatsu C12-B, #18
    THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Black
    BEAD: 5/64 Black Nickel, (4 wraps 0.10 lead)…or Tung
    ABDOMEN: Red Krystal Flash
    RIB: Wapsi, Silver, xsm
    THORAX: Spirit River Iridsescent dyed peacock eye, Purple

    This is a variation of Craig Matthew’s ” Bloody Midge”, out of his BRF Shop, using a new product for the thorax from Spirit River…

    It worked extremely well at the "BEWITCHIN' HOUR", when the sun was off the water at sunset...



    This is Michael, at the gauge, on the East Walker... at sunset - using Simply Red...

    PT/TB
