I finally saw backswimmers in a lake today and it appeared trout like them. It also appeared they liked Ira's "barrel bug" as I caught a couple of trout on them lost a couple, missed a couple and had one break off. A very nice outing, backswimmers spotted and no ticks or snakes spotted. I was out the day before at Quincy Lake and was surprised to see the fish so close to shore. A guy with a bobber and fly was doing quite well casting from the boat launch. I was anchored up a couple hundred yards from the launch and had fish hitting a Gorman style bloodworm, a green chronie pupa and again, Ira's barrel bug. Bad thing is the one that was working on Wednesday was the one broken off on Thursday. Also a nice outing and both days were low wind days.
