I usually smoke a bowl and have a beer...Spot fishing to fish like that, is nerve racking.
I always end up laughing at myself.
I can make a perfect cast, to a rising 14-20" fish, from 10-50 ft away...and end up throwing my line (as if casting left handed) when I can see fish in the upper 20's - lower 30's.
I often stop...and talk to my hands.
That is really stupid. The Wiggy is pretty famous and limits pressure by design. I guess that's why I never saw another person even though the river is well known.
Hope Rufus is doing better, the Wiggies a special place for both Bullies and Cuts and painted rocks... hard to imagine a prettier stream.... heading down on Weds to pull the sticks for a friend in need on the Elk but wish I was heading into Grizzly central instead.....
I know that a lot of people think that putting something on a fishing forum will send hoards of fly fishers to their favorite spots. I have never seen it actually happen. Typically when a place gets tons of pressure from a fishing report, the report came from a fly/bait shop and the local newspaper printed it, and it's within the range of a day trip from a major city.Countless quality fisheries have been ruined by internet based reports.
