Hatch matched spent

The difficulty of imitating a spent spinner is color matching. Often the mayfly changes in color when it goes spent. A sweet trick is to tie the spinners in a light color, vary the sizes and bring some markers in different colors and match it by the river side.

Friday night. The dose of caffein just doubled. An jar of extra sugarish coke on the side. Great summer flyfishing memories in mind. This vise night will be long. Vise marathon.

Dry season is finally over. Not finally. But you always know and wait for the day to come. When the end comes, the new starts. Now the prepping for the next dry season is the everyday reality. There will be a lot of trimming and waxing these coming dark months.

Night driving

The path of the fly fisherman never ends. Either you walk or sit behind the wheel. We depend on our wheels as much as a good pair of wading shoes. Often we travel at night. Often our refuge is a gas station along the road. To rest a worn out soul or to kick start it for continuation. Basically the menu contains of sugar, caffein and junk. We get to see the night creatures at these places. These lukewarm nights at the station with the greaser Impalas or their daddy’s Caddi makes you appreciate the night driving.

The hunt for trout

I had a great season with grayling. Had a bunch over two pound with a high of three pound. Now the hunt for a big brown starts.

These nights

These nights when big trouts rise. What they feed on you don’t have a damnfuckingmaddafakka clue about. You can’t move. Then they spooke. I love it.

A caddis night

That feeling, when you wake up and the first thing you remember is the night before. Loosing that BIG trout. You stalked it, watched it and sneak upon it for two and a half hours and missed the catch. That feeling!
