Midge Success!
« on: July 23, 2011, 08:53:47 PM »
Never bothered with size 18, 20 and 22's when I flyfish. Didn't think the trout would bother much with them being so small. This year I've been trying some new things especially the smaller flies as the local flyshops said try the midges when the fish are just sipping off the top. So I did. Took these brown trout with a #20 Grey Midge and a #20 Cream Midge. Had one chase a #22 Cream Midge but I tried setting the hook too soon and took the fly away right as he grabbed for it. Just a new and exciting dimension to flyfishing in late July. Most of the hatches are done except for the midges and it sure seemed to work today.

Have not ever fished for trout, or anything with a fly rod, but it shore looks like a good time to me. Great pics.

Great looking trout, you got to love the late summer fisherie when most have given up on the trout streams.
