    you guys think i didn't get any interest from the trout because my fly selection or presentation was wrong..
    I'm thinking he was getting deeper down in the pool than you, plus that stuff just smells great. Did you notice the direction he was sending the line in? It sounds like he knew that hole and how to work it. Sometimes going deep down by structure helps a lot. Was your bugger weighted? I would have tried to throw something that sinks fast with some flash and fished it with quick short strips or thrown a flashy scud or something down there. In the end, we all have good days and bad days on the water. The great thing about fly fishing for me is that even when I don't catch a thing, it's a good day getting out there. By the way, another thing to do is turn over a few rocks and see what the fish are eating and try to match the hatch. I did it the other day in the Delaware and saw scud, threw an imitation and bang!
