Yesterday I started well.
I moved on to next section.
He wasn't the biggest of the creek or for me, but surely shaped like a FOOTBALL!!
We have just started to have typical stiff SW winds for the season. These fellas are facing & swimming against winds (SEE BONUS video below).
Yesterday, in spite of winds, there were certain amount of BWO hatch and rising trout. I was fishing at a likely spot with my new design in experiment..........
As I reported in the last post, I somehow kept losing large trout (after perfect hook-sets) on my new design. So I wasn't surprised to the take. Yet a beautiful 'Bow!!
Though my concepts are already illustrated, I haven't named yet and also still in experiments. There has to be some more experiments for details so this is going to be marketable!! To be continued!!
Then today, it's hard to define good or slow or hard to judge what was going on........Weather? Fall-finicky? I ended up catching ONE & ONLY ONE.............
Another FOOTBALL in different color!!
On the other hand, this must be one of first bunch of large run-up rainbows (considering the amount I fish = probably the most among locals). This tells me rainbows are also on the move: either to munch on browns' eggs or stay in the creek to spawn even before spring. Cold front is forecast as of tomorrow Sunday. So that will make things more interesting!! Stay tuned!! I go & beat harsh weather and report live information for you (at least this month......)
