Merry Christmas for all!! Here's my "Olive Muddler Tree"!!
2012 has been a wonderful fishing year. It's blessing to me that I'm still fishing. 2012 Summary will follow soon.
I had been busy with other businesses/projects since my last visit to DePuy's (www.depuyspringcreek.com). Yesterday and today, I could finally get back to the creek. Yesterday, it was one of a few days in Paradise Valley that we didn't have any winds!! Suddenly I saw large insects here and there...........it was a super late PMD!! There were also midges. But trout rises were not so dramatic........
With my own "Mummy Snail"!!
These rainbows must be either resident or those who had entered the creek this past fall along with browns and remained here.
Today, it turned out to be a bit windier than yesterday. But at a certain spot, midge hatch was excellent!! Though I screwed up pictures (shame on me!!), I did observe the moment that midges were indeed breaking their pupal shucks and coming out!!
Swans also had a family gathering.........
