With your posts, you have already earned your spot!
I'm picturing you guys all in the Hopper wearing matching members only jackets.
They are already ordered!
Each one should have a letter on the back that when lined up next to each other spell out the word 'vain'
Great report guy's! It kinda made the point of me waiting for a couple maybe three more weeks to head east in Oregon. Figured the bulk of the fish would still be a little to deep. but then again I do love the heavy line straight down approach with chiro's or mini leaches. I also liked the dual lake kinda thing encase one doesn't pan-out to your liking you still have a back-up. I know it's a long way for me to get over east so it's nice to have a couple choices like you guy's did. one of my friends loves trolling flies because he loves to feel the slam while I like the "hands on" fishing .
And yes the east side fish are just so much stronger then the west side it is really no contest. Are you guy's using fluoro tippets? seems I can use 8 pound seagaur and not lose many flies in most the lake I have fished. sometimes (not often) i have to drop to 6 pound but that is the lightest I have found I have to drop to get hook-ups in any lake i have fished recently. I need to tie some damn flies also - can never have to many.
Yes on the fluoro tippets! I've been going with heavier and heavier tippet strength over the past few years and haven't found the "ceiling" yet. 2x is now what I use for just about everything in lake fishing. No more breaking off fish and many fewer tangles in the leader.
BTW - your two-tone nymph was killer this trip. I probably caught over 30 fish on one fly that was my point fly fished deep. I changed up to several other options for a bottom fly but the two-tone never went back in the box!
I've never found a situation where I've needed less than 4x. And that's only for flies18 and smaller. Most of the places I fish you don't want less than8 lb anyway unless you want to be constantly wondering what keeps breaking you off.
I know just where to find fermented grains. Any grain you want, I would gladly provide for the tutelage. Barley, check....Wheat, check....rice, check....rye (my favorite), check...potato, check...cabbage, check....honey, check.
Wish I could like this "twice" ;-)~
I went ahead and did it for you.
Let's see the two tone!
Wait until you see how sexy it looks on the other hook it will be on.
Two tone nymph =
Most aquatic nymphs are lighter colored on the underside that I have seen! These are from a stomach pumped - large rainbow from a eastside lake.
Nice looking bug troutpocket, can you post a recipe! I think that may be the ticket down here someday.
