Oh, what a day...........
I was super fortunate that I was able to visit and fish Nelson's Spring Creek (www.nelsonsspringcreek.com) . Due to availability of rods = 6 per day = and popularity of world-famous fishing, especially PMD hatch this time of year, I was very lucky to be there (though there would be days that I'm on the creek as a guide in a near future....).
I literally fished dawn to dusk. I did enjoy but also it must be a guide's saga that I couldn't help but experimenting here and there with this and that.
This one will also be another let-pictures-do-the-talking post!
During the calm morning, I started to see rises. I observed midges were hatching. I set the hook a bit too hard for the first one and broke off. I was careful and more concentrating for the next subtle response on my flies. Large and beautiful Yellowstone Cutthroat already made a perfect day!
As it's been the custom for the past couple of weeks, I had lunch after 2pm. For mid-afternoon, I had some other ideas in mind. Different spots of creek and terrestrial fishing............ It was very red-hot with this one being the top highlight! "Can I have my Hopper back?"
By the evening, I was very content and thinking to leave. If north breezes would subside, I might see some spinner actions.......... And it happened around 8pm. By then, I was again at one of those underestimated spots that perhaps majority of creek anglers would never care for spinner actions....... I saw continuous rises. Bite! Set! Little did I expect this trophy!
Fishing Nelson's during PMD time like this.......it may seriously be once in a life time for me......
