    Excellent day to get out and fish, arrived at the lake about 8am one gear guy and that was it and he left before I ever got ready a little later one guy showed up and that was it till the afternoon when a couple of guys showed up total bodies on the water at one time 3 very nice. Fish were rising and willing started with a soft hackle black silver rib caught a bunch on that but it didn't last long tried a few other colors caught fish but mostly because of movement I think, the fish were feeding close to the surface and I caught more on other patterns as I tried to find what they were keying in on but once again it was the whole movement thing nothing I tried was consistent until I tried a choronomid emerger pattern, that gave me a good hour of steady action with a fish on as quick as I could hook, play, land, and recast but it was only an hour but it was the best hour of the day, I put on my sinking line and a small leech pattern caught a few more before leaving satisfied with the fish I caught, most were larger holdovers I caught quite a few fish but I never managed to figure out what they were keying in on except for that one hour so it's back to the bench to tie up a few patterns that I think might work if the circumstances hold for yet another week, we'll see
