TRIP SUMMARY

I met my clients Derek and Jonas at 8 am at Deckers corner. We fished the Trumble section with the intention of dialing in some euro Nymphing tactics. Both Derek and Jonas had their own gear (top notch I might add) a Sage ESN real and rod was a perfect tool for the job. When we got on the water we noticed a few small midges hatching and our first fish of the day fell victim to a size #26 midge slim shady variation on the swing! We continued to catch fish in the early morning in slow deeper water on eggs, and Mercury pheasant tails. As the sun got higher and the water started to warm up we were able to start sighting fish. By mid day we had switched the egg out for a Leech and it produced fish into the afternoon. After lunch the wind picked up. If anyone has Euro nymphed much you know wind is kryptonite to the beginner and even expert Euro angler. It makes casting very difficult as well as registering strikes and obtaining a good drift. My clients made the best of the afternoon sight fishing was top notch action watching the fish chase leeches and rising in the water column to eat blue wing olive emerger patterns when the casts and drifts were obtainable. We wrapped up around 4 pm. My clients felt like they learned a lot about euro nyphing technics and that the day was a success!
