oh man, what a day. spent the first hour scouting/casting but then found what looked like the best water yet about 3/4mi down stream from where i parked (mind you im new to this so what i think may be great water could be the worst water out there). was seeing some surface action on the far bank so i slowly waded out and it literally felt like every cast i was getting a bite. i have never before discovered my own fishing hole so please understand why i am so excited. within an hour or so in the same 30yd stretch of stream (was right below some rapids in what looked like deeper water with some sizable boulders submerged but visible) i got 11 fish to hand, all on dry flies. i honestly felt like i was cheating out there. the first 7 or so were on a #14 black EHC but after failling to set the hook a few times in a row i checked my fly to realize that the end of the hook had actually broken off (i must have pinched it too hard/bent it when removing the barb). i then threw out a #18 grey EHC and it seemed to work just as well. most fish were in the 8-10" range I'd assume (no means of measuring for me) but there were two that were clearly larger (probably around 12", but I could be very wrong on that). by the way, besides EHC and I've heard orange stimulators, what other flies would you suggest i try swinging out there? anyways this was part report part brag because this is the first time i feel like ive gone out by myself and had a successful fishing day (the fishing part -- the days on the river are always successful). sorry i just had to tell someone. this was my first time on the south fork and it was a blast. flows were easy to wade in too for a complete noob. i guess im hooked now and need to alter my financial planning. sigh edit: as far as pics go, I only snapped one of my very first fish (took a bunch of the scenery). i do not have a net yet and I'm not the quickest at fly removal yet, so having to grab my camera would just add 30 seconds to the fish out of its element, which makes me feel bad. id rather get them back in the stream asap and know the harm done is minimal.
